Abstract: Abstract The dry friction properties of three engineering thermoplastics, ultra high‐molecular‐weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), polyoxymethylene (POW) and polyamide 66 (PA 66), have been investigated using a plane on plane contact. During running‐in, the steady‐state of the friction coincides with stable values for the surface temperature of the slider. The proper trend as well as the correct order of magnitude are observed between the measured surface temperatures and those calculated using the equation of Lanc…
