Technical Abstract: Temperature is an important parameter affecting the performance of lubricant ingredients. It affects such important tribological characteristics as viscosity, film thickness, adsorption, desorption, friction, and wear. Temperature also promotes oxidation, polymerization, and degradation which negatively impacts the useful life of lubricant ingredients. In this work, the effect of temperature on friction and wear of biobased ingredients in the boundary and mixed film regimes were investigated. The response of biobased oils of varying chemical structures to changes in temperature will be analyzed and discussed.
