Abstract:

The effect of molybdenum disulfide on lubricating oils was examined in a friction device consisting of a roll pressed to a bushing. Graphs show the effect of 0 to 5 percent molybdenum disulfide at pressures less than or equal to 100 kgf sq cm on the friction coefficient. The friction coefficient of the oil doped with molybdenum disulfide is 20 to 50 percent smaller than that of the clear oil.
