Application of solid lubricant during warm rolling process of interstitial free steel

Journal Article


Abstract


  • In this paper, a solid lubricant has been applied to the warm rolling process of interstitial free (IF)

    steel and its effect has been studied compared with dry condition. The solid lubricant effectively

    reduced the rolling force. The surface quality and microstructure of strips were improved by solid

    lubricant during warm rolling process. The high temperature behaviour of the solid lubricant has

    been in situ observed in a high temperature laser scanning confocal microscope. A series of pin

    on disc tests with different temperatures and lubrication conditions were carried out to study the

    contact behaviour of this solid lubricant in contact area. The results show that the solid lubricant

    can effectively eliminate the surface defect and reduce the wear and oxidation in the contact zone

    compared with the dry sliding condition. The contact surface under solid lubricant condition

    presents a lower friction coefficient compared to the dry condition.
