Welcome to POLYTRIB 2018
The 3rd International conference on Polymer Tribology
24th – 25th September 2018
Grand Hotel Bernardin, Portorož, 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 2nd Polytrib conference held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2016, with more than 70 attendees from 18 countries, and more than half coming from industrial sector, the 3rd 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 will welcome several distinguished invited keynote speakers, regular technical sessions, posters, exhibition and social events, with accompanying persons programme.
In addition there will be Session dedicated to polymer gears and International workshop on Polymer Tribology supported by STINT, Sweden-Japan 150 Anniversary Grants.
