Two Different Polymers Used to Imitate Biological Lubrication

Two Different Polymers Used to Imitate Biological Lubrication

Lubricants are required wherever moving parts come together. They prevent direct contact between solid elements and ensure that gears, bearings, and valves work as smoothly as possible. Depending on the application, the ideal lubricant must meet conflicting requirements. On the one hand, it should be as thin as possible because this reduces friction. [More]
