Tribology

Tribology is concerned wiht the scientific characterisation of friction, wear and lubrication and the development of technologies serving to optimise frictional processes.

A distinction is made between "tribomechanical" and "tribochemical" effects.

  • Basic Knowledge Of Tribology

    Several billion Euros of economic losses are caused every year through friction and wear. In order to reduce these cost extensive tribological basic research is carried out. On this basis, companies then occupy themselves with specific knowledge, such as OKS Spezialschmierstoffe GmbH with the development of high-performance lubricants.
