n order to investigate the tribological system in aluminum sheet forming, pin-on-plate tests were performed on three types of lubricated aluminum plates at room temperature (RT) and at 100 °C. The lubricant compositions were analyzed using high resolution mass spectrometry. Additionally, the surface topographies of the aluminum plates were investigated using an optical 3D profiler. The results showed remarkable increase of the coefficient of friction (COF) at 100 °C. The COF was in the ranges of 0.07-0.10 and 0.13-0.29 at RT and 100 °C, respectively. The main wear mechanisms during the friction tests were flattening of the asperities and ploughing
