Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the suitable composition of engine oil mixed with nano-additive and to test and characterize viscosity and scar diameter the mixture of zirconia dioxide (ZrO2) nanoparticles, dispersed in conventional engine oil (SAE 15W40). Tribological testing was conducted using a four-ball tester according to ASTM standard D4172 procedures. Besides, viscosity testing also conducted using heated viscosity at 40˚C. According to the analysis, COF and wear scar diameter only increased slightly by dispersing several concentrations of ZrO2 nanoparticles in conventional engine oil, compared to without nanoparticles additive. Contribution of 0.1 vol.% of ZrO2 can be an optimal composition additive in conventional engine oil, to obtain a lower COF. On the other hand, the results of kinematic viscosity show that at 0.2 vol.% has the best value of viscosity.
