The Race for the Next “Lube Leader”

We're hosting our first

Lube Race Contest

Send us your lubricants and find out how they stand up against the competition! Winners will receive the “Lube Leader Award 2018”. The sample with the lowest friction and wear, as per ASTM D4172, will be declared the winner.

From now until August 31, 2018, we’ll be running complimentary AW triplicate tests using our new, state of the art Four Ball Tester. Send us your samples for testing and each week, we’ll let you know how your lubricants rank against other competitors. Don’t worry—all submissions are confidential, and your rankings will never be made public!
