Abstract:

The conditions necessary for improved wetting of molten B2O3 on molybdenite MoS2 and M-10 steel were determined. The information gained from the wetting experiments was used to guide the preparation parameters of MoS2B2O3 solid lubricant films on M-10 substrates. Films were prepared under different conditions designed to produce either good binder wetting or poor binder wetting. Wear-life tests showed superior endurance for the films where binder wetting was good. The conclusion drawn from these experiments is that wear-life of bonded solid films can be related to the binder wetting of film components and substrate. Author
