    Lubricating grease is defined and its composition and useful lubrication properties compared to those of fluid lubricants are discussed. Grease manufacture and grease selection for particular applications is reviewed, as well as the general characteristics of greases based on thickener type. Specifications and general classification systems for grease are covered, followed by a very thorough section on grease tests and their significance.
