Synergetic effects of surface texturing and solid lubricants to tailor friction and wear – A review

Surface texturing and solid lubricants have demonstrated the ability to substantially reduce friction and wear under dry conditions. In recent decades, these two technologies have been combined to leverage the advantages of both for superior tribological performance. This review article first summarizes the state-of-the-art regarding surface texturing and solid lubricants, including soft metals, polytetrafluorethylene, diamond-like carbon and 2D layered materials. Then, the synergy between surface textures and solid lubricants is discussed, with particular emphasis on the underlying mechanisms. Finally, gaps in the existing understanding of these synergies are identified and opportunities for future research are suggested.
