The cutting fluid manufacturers aim to obtain the best products at the lowest possible price. To achieve such a compromise experimental work is needed, trying to get the lowest allowed content of additive in the base oil. The paper presents the results of standard tests carried out on four ball machine. This tribometer is used to analyze the load-carrying properties of cutting fluids. The results are compared with the standard requirements, related to the measured wear scar on the three lower balls of the four ball device. An optimum of sulphur additive content into the base oil was found around 10%. According to the actual standards and following the results of carried-out tests, for this specific case the lowest acceptable content of additive is around 4%.
