Tribological Properties of Oils Modified with the Addition of Metal Nanoparticles
The present paper describes a part of an introductory examination concerning the improvement of tribological properties of base oils (used for lubricating as well as cutting oils compounding) through their composition modification by copper or molybdenum nanoparticles (nanopowder) addition. The results of tribological tests are presented as well as results of an examination of wear amount of elements cooperating in friction couples lubricated with unmodified or modified oils. These results testify to a positive influence of the described oil modification on its tribological properties manifested in friction couples.
