Abstract

This work was aimed at studying the tribological properties of nanolamellar tungsten and molybdenum disulfides produced from nanosized W and Mo nanopowders by self-propagating high-temperature synthesis. The prepared WS2 and MoS2 powders were examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and differential thermal analysis (DTA). For tribological tests, oil-based lubricants added with nanolamellar tungsten and molybdenum disulfides were prepared. The tribological tests show that the friction coefficient of the nanolamellar powders is lower than that of commercial powder ( min = 0.024 and 0.064, resp.). It is also found that the oil-based lubricants with nanolamellar disulfide additives display higher antifriction and antiwear properties compared to commercial powder.
