Abstract

Vegetable oil based lubricant has received much attention in recent years due to its biodegradable properties, low toxicity and environmental friendly. This study used refined, bleached and deodorized (RBD) palm kernel blended with zinc-dialkyl-dithiophosphate (ZDDP) to evaluate the tribological performance as a potential alternative lubricant. The ZDDP additives were added with concentration of 0wt%, 1wt%, 3wt% and 5wt%. Commercial mineral oil SAE 40 was used for comparison purposes. The tests were performed at 1.5 m/s and 3.5 m/s of sliding speed under 9.81 applied load for 1 hour at room temperature. The results indicate that the presence of ZDDP in RBD palm kernel have improved both friction reducing and anti-wear performance. The formulation of RBD palm kernel have the potential to be used as a substitution for mineral based lubricant in near future.
