Abstract

Demand on for‐life lubrication needs to control all mechanisms being present in the tribocontact. Herein we present elementary chemical mechanisms supported by lubricants leading to effective destruction of machinery elements over long time. The chemical process may overtake all other essential mechanisms in for‐life lubrication. As far as known these mechanisms offer a fascination world of unknown reactions.
