Machineries in the industry nowadays are lubricated with a lubricant which derived from petroleum mining product. However it would not sustain as it is known to be non-renewable source with highly non-biodegradable in nature. This study is aim to blend a commercial cooking oil made up from corn oils with addition of two types of additives known as ZDDP and MoDTP as a tribological improvers. There are 6 samples will be prepared with fixed concentration of Zinc dialkyldithiophosphate at 1.5wt% and varies concentration of Molybdenum dialkyldithiophosphate (MoDTP) by immersing those sample in water bath. These samples will then test to ensure dilution of additives with the base oil using Rotating Disc Electrode according to ASTM D6595. Next all samples will be characterize based on friction and wear scar diameter by a method in accordance to ASTM D4172. Results shown, sample blend contains 1.5wt% ZDDP and 0.1wt% MoDTP exhibited desirable performances with lower coefficient of friction and lower wear scar diameter. Thus it is worth to note that, the desirable concentration of additives into the bio lubricant expressed marginal lubricity performances compared to optimum concentration of additives with suggestion to be environmentally friendly leading to sustainable future.
