Abstract:
We developed a unique reducing additive composed primarily of polyolester, diester, and vegetable oil-based ester compounds in order to switch from boundary to fluid lubrication and improve tribology performance, and chemically and experimentally investigated its effects on tribology performance. To confirm the lubrication effects of this reducing additive, we added it to oil and chemically investigated the cleaning and dissolving of the ultra-fine particle layer of contaminants, etc., adhering to lubrication pathways and sliding surfaces, and performed commercialization testing using actual vehicles. We found that this additive washed away and dissolved sludge, varnish, and other contaminants from lubricated surfaces, improving their lubrication properties and their tribology performance by reducing abrasion and friction.
