Abstract : The authors study the effect of the sliding rate and loading on the coefficient of friction in molybdenum disulfide. A 20-30 micron layer of molybdenum disulfide was applied to the ends of annular bronze specimens. The material for other member of the friction pair was 2Kh13 steel. The effect of surface finish on the friction properties of molybdenum disulfide was also studied. The effect of continuous stationary contact on the coefficient of friction in MoS2 was studied by applying a layer of molybdenum sulfied to the internal surface of bronze sleeves and mounting them on 2Kh13 steel shafts.
