Abstract : The corrosion of steel surfaces in contact with molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) has posed the question whether the process is induced by the lubricant. The present investigation shows that MoS2 can accelerate the attack of steel at high humidity. The milled material is much more corrosive than the unmilled product. The addition of a suitable inhibitor is effective in suppressing corrosion. (Author)
