  • During the last few years, graphene's unusual friction and wear properties have been demonstrated at nano to micro scales but its industrial tribological potential has not been fully realized. The macroscopic wear resistance of one atom thick graphene coating is reported by subjecting it to pin-on-disc type wear testing against most commonly used steel against steel tribo-pair. It is shown that when tested in hydrogen, a single layer of graphene on steel can last for 6400 sliding cycles, while… CONTINUE READING
