WELCOME TO POLYTRIB 2017

The 2nd International conference on Polymer Tribology

15th – 16th September 2016

Grand Hotel Union, Ljubljana, Slovenia

The use of polymer materials in tribological contacts has increased rapidly in the past few decades. The demand for the polymer-based tribological contacts is evermore increasing, and this trend appears to hold in the future as well.

There are several aspects of polymer properties, production, design and use that could be further improved and tailored to achieve better friction and wear performance, which is the goal of this conference.

After the 1st Polytrib conference held in Bled, Slovenia, in 2014, with 70 attendees from 11 countries, and more than half coming from industrial sector, the 2nd PolyTrib conference tends to bring together a broader range of participants in the whole exploitation chain, from the research and manufacturing to the sales sectors. The goal is to enlarge the audience and serve as a world-wide recognised event for exchange of knowledge in tribology of polymers, which is broadly lacking today.

The conference welcomed several distinguished invited keynote speakers, regular technical sessions, posters, exhibition and social events, with accompanying persons programme.
