The viscosity-temperature characteristic of the base oil was examined. We considered the viscosity of the base oil simulated using various silicone oils. The friction tests using silicone oils were carried out without changing temperature. As a result, it was found that a lack of lubrication occurs due to high viscosity. Accordingly, this suggests that there is an upper limit of viscosity for maintaining lubrication.
