Show Notes

Overcoming friction wastes between 20-30% of a country's Gross Domestic Product, and most of this will be the energy costs to overcome friction. Additionally, it is estimated that wear contributes about 3% of GDP (machines breaking down, cost of replacement parts, cost of downtime etc.).

That makes lubricants an extremely important part of business sustainability. Even if you don't believe in climate change, business sustainability is inclusive of both carbon emissions and energy costs. With the cost per unit of energy currently skyrocketing like never before, isn't it time your business looked to your lubrication program to help cut energy use?
