Abstract:

Random copolymers are formed by reacting methyl methacrylate and n-octadecyl methacrylate normal octadecyl methacrylate at about 75-80 C in the presence of catalytic amounts of benzoyl peroxide. The mole percentage of the monomer units containing the octadecyl group in the copolymers ranges from 7-21, the mole percentage of the monomer units originating from methyl methacrylate ranging from 79-93. The copolymers are useful as moldable lubricants which possess admirable toughness, low friction and low wear. Author
