A study was carried out on the effect of thickeners on the physicochemical properties of low-temperature greases. The dispersed phases were the lithium soap of stearic and 12-hydroxystearic acids, lithium soap of 12-hydroxystearic acid and 2-ethylhexyl borate, complex lithium soap of 12-hydroxystearic acid and azelaic acid, complex lithium soap of 12-hydroxystearic, sebacic, and boric acids, diurea, Aerosil, a polymer thickener and its hybrids with Aerosil.

Key words

low-temperature greases simple and complex lithium soaps diurea polymer thickener
