The paper presents a new approach to optimization of the metal-polymer tribological characteristics based on correlation between the total sum of polar component values of surface free energy tribological characteristics (wear and friction) of rubbing materials. The authors predict that research of friction and wear mechanism of modified friction joints should make possible to generalize the principles of rational selection of manufacturing technology of polymer-metal friction joints.
