Best Answer

The normal term is lane conditioner. In the early days of Bowling, oil conditioner was applied to the lane as a barrier to protect the surface from damage over years of use.

As lacquer, polyurethane and synthetic surfaces became more popular, oil became part of the sport, much like how grass is grown and cut in Golf courses.
