Abstract [en]

Mineral oil based lubricants are dominating the market still. However, there is now a broad range of environmentally adapted lubricants (EAL) based on both natural and synthetic esters. Wear was studied in a pin-on-disc-machine giving the wear coefficient. The surface reactions formed by the additives were examined. The studied lubricants were formulated with a complex ester as the base fluid. The wear number decreased with increasing reacted surface layer depth as well as with increasing oxide layer. A highly polar base fluid gave relatively low wear numbers even without additives. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 16th International Colloquium Tribology Lubricants Materials and Lubrication Engineering (Stuttgart/Ostfildern, Germany 1/15-17/2008).
