Spanish term or phrase: polar
Su estructura ofrece cualidades deseables en un lubricante, sus largas cadenas de ácidos grasos y su naturaleza polar, proporcionan películas de alta resistencia lubricante, las cuales interactúan fuertemente con superficies metálicas, reduciendo la fricción y el desgaste.

polar properties
Explanation:
In answer to your question in the discussion, yes fatty acids can be polar.

They have extremely occlusive properties and may induce acanthosis and comedos. Polar systems include fatty oils (medium- and longchain unsaturated or brunched fatty acids), lipogels (triglyceride gels) and oleogels (hydrophobic gels). They have less occlusive properties and are better tolerated on the skin than apolar ...

For vegetable oils and bio-fuels, the dielectric properties may correlate with properties such as density, viscosity, distribution of molecular size and the amount of polar components.

  -> Thanks Marie, it takes me back to my PhD, messing about with oils and emulsions. ;@) // I had great teachers, makes all the difference IMO.

agree  neilmac: The whole sentence needs a kicking... :)

  -> Ha ha, indeed, engineers are probably worse authors than scientists, ;@)
