The area of tribology deals with the design, friction, wear and lubrication of interacting surfaces. Polymer nanocomposite materials are fresh and offer remarkable improvements in friction and wear.

This book gives a comprehensive description of polymeric nanocomposites, as well as their use in tribological applications. It provides the preparation techniques, friction and wear mechanisms, properties of polymeric nanocomposites, characterization, evaluation and selection methodology. It also provides various examples of the application of polymeric nanocomposites.

* Provides a complete reference to the selection of polymeric nanocomposites
* Explains the theory through real world applications
* More than 20 international tribology experts contribute to their area of expertise
