Graphite fluoride, a proposed solid lubricant material, was evaluated with a sphere-on-plane tester to determine if previously generated data could be reproduced. Preliminary experiments with CFxn graphite fluoride, substituted int existing film formulations in place of MoS2, revealed extremely short wear-lives when other test geometries were used. However, with the sphere-on-plane configuration, the data previously reported were reproduced. Wear-lives and friction coefficients for burnished MoS2 and CFxn are presented, along with friction coefficients for the bare metal combinations used. Also included are compressive stress values in the test zone based upon the starting and finishing contact areas. Author
