Newly developed lubricant was produced by introducing Zinc Dialkyldithiophosphate (ZDDP) into commercialized corn oil. ZDDP added acted as a physical property improver which lowers the kinematic viscosity and reduces coefficient of friction. The newly developed oil was tested with a kinematic viscometer while characterized using a pin on disc tribometer. Corn oil with 2 wt% ZDDP and 5 wt% ZDDP showed a decreasing trend of coefficient of friction with increment of applied load on the pin on disc test. Corn oil with 2 wt% ZDDP showed a desirable kinematic viscosity value of 36.3 cSt.
