The micro/nano textured cemented carbide surface of different wettability was produced by laser scanning and fluorinated treatment. The tribological properties of the un-textured, oleophobic and oleophilic micro/nano textured surface were investigated experimentally including the effects of crank speed and contact pressure by a reciprocating friction and a wear tester. For all tested surfaces, the friction coefficient of the surface decreased as both the increasing crank speed and contact pressure increased. Compared to the un-textured surface, the friction coefficient of the micro/nano textured surface was significantly decreased, being sensitive to the wettability of the surface. Besides, the tribological properties of the oleophobic micro/nano textured surface were superior to the oleophilic micro/nano textured surface under the same experimental conditions. The improvement in tribological properties of the oleophobic micro/nano textured surface could be attributed to the low wettability, which was beneficial to rapid accumulation of the lubricating oil on the surface.
