Abstract : Solid lubricants present a solution in some applications to the need for safe, effective lubrication in the higher temperature and pressure ranges demanded by Navy machinery. Friction and wear characteristics of self-lubricating-type composite materials have been evaluated for potential high-pressure air compressor application using a bench-scale apparatus. A few of the materials have been used successfully in a nonlubricated cylinder seal application. (Author)
