Abstract: Currently known magnetic lubricant nanofluids have insufficiently good tribological characteristics when operating in the boundary friction mode. An adaptation method is proposed for the boundary friction of magnetic siloxane nanofluids by modifying their composition with chemically active antifriction, antiwear and extreme pressure additives. A number of lubricating compositions of magnetic nanofluids based on polyethylsiloxane PES-5 have been created. Conducted experimental studies have shown that the most significant improvement in the antifriction and antiwear properties of nanofluids is achieved with the introduction of Sovol and 3N2TE chlorine additives into their structure. Adding to the nanofluid the antioxidant additive DF-11, the fluorine-containing additive
EO-1, the metal-plating compound MKF-18 did not lead to a significant improvement in the antifriction properties. It has been established that magnetic nanofluids with modifying additives are comparable in tribological properties with traditional non-magnetic liquid lubricants and are superior to plastic lubricants based on polyethylsiloxane. The developed compositions based on siloxane nanofluids will be in demand for lubrication of rolling and sliding bearings, gears, contact seals, which operate at low and elevated temperatures in a gas environment or in a vacuum. Most successfully, they can be used in vacuum and space technology, for magnetic frictional units, where only one refueling with a limited amount of lubricant is possible.

Keywords: magnetic lubricant nanofluid, boundary friction, wear, lubrication, anti-friction and anti-wear additives
