  • Publication number: 20220003295
    Abstract: When a contact area with a chain guide is reduced to a small area by forming a back surface of a link plate into a convex portion having a round shape or the like, a friction coefficient in a fluid lubrication region is reduced (region E). A coating film containing 10% or more of chromium is formed on the link plate. A friction modifier made of a molybdenum compound such as MoDTC and added to a lubricating oil promotes generation of MoS2 by the chromium coating film, and prevents an increase in the friction coefficient in a boundary lubrication region.
