Effects of Extreme Pressure Additives on Lubricity and Anti-seizure Property of Lubricants
The effects on lubricity and anti-seizure property of lubricants according to base oils and EP additives of sulfur and phosphorous types in cold rolling were evaluated by a laboratory scale rolling mill, where the contact conditions between work roll and strip are very close to an actual cold rolling mill. The following experimental results were obtained. Sulfur type EP additive improves lubricity better than phosphorous type. In contrast, phosphorous type EP additive improves anti-seizure property better than sulfur type. And anti-seizure property is not affected by the kinds of base oil, but improved by the kinds and the amount of EP additives. Therefore, the amount of EP additives of sulfur and phosphorous types must be controlled in order to improve both lubricity and anti-seizure property. In addition, the existence of EP film was verified from the results of EDS analysis of the Falex test pins.
