Annual losses of approximately 5 % of the gross domestic product are caused by friction and wear. The availability of tailored materials with advantageous frictional behaviour and low wear leads to reduced energy consumption and CO2-emissions, particularly when they are used in mobile applications. The Chair of Composite Engineering at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern works on the development of such materials. High performance polymers are combined with reinforcement fibers and micro- and nano-sized fillers. The resulting composites join the advantages of their individual components to achieve optimal properties for their respective field of use.
