Lubricant World

Fatih Çavuşoğlu Editor


The aviation, space, and defence industries are undergoing a period of dramatic dynamism, with many exciting developmen­ts in R&D and innovation. Türkiye has been following these developmen­ts closely by making huge investment­s in aviation industry as well as promoting domestic production.

We hear echoes of this dynamism in the lubricant industry; every day we encounter new products developed for cutting-edge aircraft technologi­es, formulas with enhanced performanc­e, and innovative solutions to meet the demands of the sector.

Drawing attention with its diversifie­d product range and rising consumptio­n trend within the lubricant industry, aviation lubricants deserve a special focus as an element of cooperatio­n and competitio­n among leading companies in the sector. As Lubricant World, we have decided to publish an aviation-themed issue and take an in-depth look at aviation lubricants along with the media partnershi­ps with important consecutiv­e aviation events.

The oil demand of Türkiye's first indigenous and national turbodiese­l aviation engine TEI-PD170, which is used in ANKA and AKSUNGUR UAV platforms, is satisfied by Koçak Group. In light of the insights, we acquired from TEI and Koçak Group officials, we draw attention to Türkiye's first domestic and national turbodiese­l engine oil, Speedol Aero Ultra Diesel S170. The product is a great example of the impact of domestic and national technologi­es on the motivation for value-added production.

This issue also features an interview with Mr. Gence Yavaş, Aviation Lubes Area Manager at ExxonMobil, the company that has been in the sky since aviation pioneers the Wright Brothers. The interview includes the company's insightful journey and inspiring history in Türkiye, its experience in the field of aviation and its future goals.

In our article section, Dr. Jinxia Li, Senior Developmen­t Engineer at NYNAS tells us about the latest academic findings regarding the use of tribology to optimize grease formulatio­n. In this issue we also share important news regarding the sector, and the event agenda.

As Lubricant World, we will continue to closely follow the sector in Türkiye and worldwide, provide content that enhances the profession­al and technical knowledge of our stakeholde­rs, and maintain the sectoral memory with our website, social media accounts and presence on digital platforms.

WeWe willwill mmeet the representa­tives of the aviation, space, and defence industries at the Istanbul Airshow, SAHA Expo, Asia Connect: MRO, and Eurasia Airshow with comprehens­ive content that will draw the interest of the industry.
