Development of novel nano-additive water based lubricant technology for hot rolling of steels

Grant


Scheme


  • R&D Fund

Abstract


  • Lubrication is a long standing issue in hot rolling of steels as it significantly affects surface quality of rolled strips, roll wear and energy consumption. Presently in Baosteel oil based lubricants are used. However, their lubrication effect is considerably reduced by the use of high pressure cooling water and discharge of waste lubricants is of environmental concern. This research aims to develop novel nano-additive water based lubricants that have high wettability and affinity to steel surfaces and high-temperature stability, and to understand the associated lubrication mechanism. Successful outcomes will improve product quality, reduce resources utilisation and solve an environmental problem for Baosteel.
