International conference on Polymer Tribology - POLYTRIB

The International conference PolyTrib addresses the tribological challenges of polymer materials.   

polytrib

PolyTrib conference takes place every two years and addresses the tribological challenges of polymer materials. The conference aims to summarize the state of the art research activities in this field and compare them with specific needs and demands in the industrial and other sectors.

 

POLYTRIB 2022

Since 2014, PolyTrib conference has taken place every two years in Slovenia. Due to Covid-19 pandemic, PolyTrib 2020 had to be cancelled. PolyTrib is a unique and popular conference among polymer tribologists and polymer scientists from academia and industry.

4th international conference on polymer tribology, PolyTrib 2022 will take place in Stockholm, Sweden on 5th-6th December 2022.

From this year on, PolyTrib conference will take place alternatively between Slovenia and Sweden every two years.

PolyTrib 2022 is a meeting place that creates the opportunity for experts from industries and academia to meet and discuss polymer-tribology, from polymer manufacturing and compounding to final user aspects and needs. Invited lectures, regular technical talks, posters, exhibitions and social events will take place during this 2-days event.

The state of the art of polymer tribology research in general, as well as related to specific needs and demands in the industrial and other sectors will be presented. In particular, wear of polymers, polymers in automotive industry, recycling aspects and circular economy of polymeric-based materials in tribological components, polymers in energy sector, biobased polymer composites, solid lubricants, 3D printed polymers in tribological applications, polymers in hydrogen application and biotribology are some of the topics which will be covered during the conference.
