Abstract

Lubricant is a substance to reduce the friction between two moving component surfaces. The movement of components in internal combustion engine of vehicle is at high velocity and may cause a highly friction. The friction between two surfaces may cause the heat and also wear and tear to the component. As the lubricant is an important to reduce all of these effect, the new kind of bio-lubricant is needed to create as the resources of petroleum is limited and will become shortage in the next few years. The petroleum based lubricant also is hard to dispose and may harm to the environment. The bio-lubricant made of palm oil with ZDDP addictive is focused on this project. The study to reduce the friction and wear on the automotive application is been highlighted. The bio-lubricant will be tested in laboratory to analyse its characteristics and effects on the friction and wear before can be implemented in the automotive industries. With the common testing method used, the results of the viscosity and its effect on friction will be discussed before can be implemented in automotive industries.
