Abstract

This article investigated the tribological performance of the specially formulated chlorine-free lubricant in strip drawing of advanced high strength steel. Four different lubrication conditions (dry, chlorine-free lubricant, chlorine additive lubricant, and mineral base lubricant) at two sliding speeds (10 and 100 mm/min) were carried out to observe the friction coefficients of the die-workpiece interface in the strip drawing test. The main difference among these lubricants was the contents of chlorine and sulfur additives. The die and workpiece materials were SKD11 and JSH780R, respectively. The results showed that the combination of chlorine and sulfur additives provided the best tribological behaviors. In addition, only the small amount of sulfur content could establish a bond with metal surfaces. However, the higher sulfur content could interact with metal surfaces, because it was influenced by the increased temperature (higher sliding speed) and adsorption.
