Methods of testing anti-wear materials in a meaningful way are discussed. The friction and wear properties of metallic, ceramic, polymeric, composite and solid film lubricants are described, and examples of good low-wear materials within each category are given. The limited amount of theoretical insight which has been developed to help in selecting low-wear materials by a systematic procedure, rather than by trial-and error methods, is illustrated, and a discussion is given of the long-range problems involved in producing highly reliable anti-wear materials.
