The effect of applied DC voltage on the friction and wear of CNx sliding against stainless steel pin in air was clarified. Friction coefficient decreased with the increasing negative voltage to apply to the ball and disk in air. On the other hand, positive voltage increased friction coefficient. Friction coefficient of CNx in air decreased from 0.22 to 0.05 by applying electric voltage of DC −200 V. Specific wear rate was decreased with the increasing applied positive and negative voltage. It was considered that the oxidation of CNx was controlled by electric field.
