An examination was made of the effect of temperature and the nature of the filler molybdenum disulfide, boron nitride, barium sulfate, ground coke, talic, soot, or colloidal graphite on the coefficient of friction and wear of Fluoroplast polychlorotrifluoro ethylene while undergoing a witer-lubricated friction process. In general 1 wear decreases with increasing filler content up to a limit 2 wear increases with increasing water temperature 3 the coefficient of friction mu increases as temperature increases 4 mu decreases with increasing specific pressure and 5 mu decreases with increasing speed of sliding. Under the test conditions, MoS2, BN, BaSO4, and coke proved improve the wear resistance to a greater extent than the other fillers.
