Incorporation of solid lubricants into surface of friction parts engineered for high-temperature applications
engineered for high-temperature applications
Since traditional lubricants fail when friction is combined with high temperature, it is either impossible or impractical to use these materials in many industrial applications. The need for improved lubricating technologies is critical when trying to solve tribological problems concerning dry friction or boundary lubrication under high temperatures. The goal of the HIGRAPH project is to provide participating SMEs and the machinery industry with a novel technology for manufacturing sliding and rotating components that enhances dry-friction performance under high temperatures, increases durability, and extends the service lifetime of the part.
