Mechanisms behind the promising tribological performance of a boric acid based lubricant additive
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the 42th Leeds-Lyon Symposium on Tribology, 2015Conference paper, Presentation (Other academic)
The tribological behavior of new Swedish boron containing lubricant products has been tested with the intention to understand the mechanism behind the remarkable fuel saving obtained in field tests. Chemical analyses of samples from lab tests as well as from field tests suggest that a thin layer of boric acid if formed and works as a solid lubricant.
