In this study, the effects of addition of boron nitride nanoplatelets (BNNPs) upon friction and wear behavior of epoxy resin have been investigated by using pin-on-disk test. It has been reported in the literature that certain amounts of BNNP addition can be useful for enhancement of mechanical properties. Therefore, it is very important to obtain the effect of such addition upon friction and wear performance of epoxy resin. BNNPs have been incorporated at 0.3–0.5–0.7–1 wt %. It is shown that BNNP addition results in decrease in friction coefficient and wear. It is also shown that the best results are obtained with 0.5% nanoplatelet addition. It is also observed that heat conduction of epoxy resin is enhanced by the nanoplatelet addition.
