Abstract : The booklet brings to light a new phenomenon discovered - namely, the effect of selective transfer of metals under friction, which sharply reduces the wear of components. It reveals the mechanism of this phenomenon and the authors describe the principles governing it and its practical applications. By this phenomenon, it has become possible with the friction method to deposit thin, 'lubricating' layers of copper, brass or bronze on steel surfaces, for purposes of increasing the protective properties of the components. Selective transfer is used as a means of reducing wear of components with the application of metal plating lubricants containing bronze or brass powders. (Author)
