Abstract
Various experiments have been performed to show the reduction of friction on smooth and rigid surfaces by tribometric methods. Varnished elastomers of EPDM and SBR have been investigated with respect to their friction properties on model substrates of steel, car glass and varnished sheets. It is demonstrated that the friction coefficient of elastomers coated with certain sliding lacquer systems can be reduced significantly compared to the uncoated equivalents. Thereby the highest values of friction coefficients were found on varnished sheets and the lowest values were verified on smooth steel substrates.
