This Symposium on Synthetic Lubricants was sponsored by Technical Committee B on Lubricating Oils of A.S.T.M. Committee D-2 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants to fill the need for its dissemination of technical data pertaining to these materials. It has been arranged by the Instrument Oil group of Utility Section U-V since this section has been engaged in the study of synthetics. An attempt has been made to include in this symposium a panorama of this subject so that people technically engaged may participate in the discussion in addition to the appeal it may have to general interest participants. The principal speakers include technical representatives of the leading chemical concerns employed in the manufacture of synthetic materials currently used as lubricants. It will be clearly shown that the need has been definitely established for materials having properties superior to petroleum for use in aircraft. Mr. C. C. Singleterry will corroborate this statement and show the rapid development of synthetics upon recognition of the need. The growth and interest in these materials has resulted in intense study and development in anticipation of fulfilling the requirements of heretofore unsolved lubrication problems.
