The temperature dependence of traction coefficient was evaluated for some kinds of disk-shaped liquid crystal compounds by using the Reciprocating type (SRV) friction/wear tester under EHL contacts. Regardless of disk-shaped frame structure, all of these compounds were found to show traction coefficients of less than 0.04 within each liquid crystal temperature range, and moreover under the extreme pressure condition of about several hundred MPa.
