CemeCon coating chamber

Engineers in Argonne’s Tribology Laboratory conduct research on advanced tribological systems (surface engineered materials, lubricants, fuels, and fuel/lubricant additives) for use in aggressive environments (for example, where two surfaces are rubbing together). The Laboratory is equipped with a full range of coating development, friction and wear testing, and characterization facilities. Learn more.
