This is a study on the tribological behaviour of ZnO nanoparticles as an additive in a polyalphaolefin (PAO6) and on the influence of dispersing agents (OL100 and OL300). Antiwear and extreme pressure tests were run on two four-ball machines. Firstly, it was demonstrated that OL300 has better dispersant properties than OL100, and also was found formation of aggregates for 1 and 1.5% of ZnO in PAO6 + 3% OL300 suspension. Ensuing SEM and EDS analysis of the worn surface highlighted a number of conclusions: OL100 and OL300 are potentially useful as wear reducer additives in PAO6, the non-coated ZnO nanoparticles had an abrasive behaviour, and ZnO nanoparticles do not act as anti-wear agent under certain conditions but in EP conditions they can decrease wear.
