SAN RAMON, Calif. — Lubricants University, an educational Web site, is introducing two new courses, “Fundamentals of Lubricant Additives” and “Base Oils,” as part of its online training. The two modules are self-study, Web-based programs designed for lubricant resellers, industrial end users, compounders, blenders and individuals interested in expanding their knowledge of lubricant formulation.
