Recent advances in surface engineering and solid lubrication technologies offer unique possibilities for better controlling friction and wear under boundary or marginally lubricated rolling, sliding or rotating contact conditions. The aim of the study was to evaluate influence of graphite solid lubrication addition on silicone oil tribological performance. Studies of graphite solid lubrication effect was carried out with using tribological testing station UMT-2 Bruker. Tests were performed against UHMW polyethylene samples and under various conditions, differing in relative speed and the load of interacting frictional pair.
