Abstract:

Described is a lubricant based on oil synthesized microbiologically from diesel fuel, paraffins, kerosene, natural gas, and peat and shale fractions. It is close in composition and properties slightly more volatile at 300C to palm oil. It reduced friction better during cold rolling of 08 KP low C and E3A transformer steel plates, and was more easily removed by washing.
