Project Title: Development of novel nano additive water based lubrication technology for hot rolling of steels (via ARC-L project LP150100591)

Investigators: 
  • Prof Han Huang, The University of Queensland
  • Prof Zhengyi Jiang, University of Wollongong

This research is developing novel nano-additive water based lubricants which will improve rolled steel product quality and reduce resources utilisation. Nanomechanical and nano-tribological tests are being used to understand oxide scale evolution and its effect on lubrication behaviour. Developing recycling technology for the new lubricants is also proposed.
