This paper summarizes the friction and wear behavior of some fluoride-metal, self-lubricating composites. Fluoride-infiltrated sintered nickel alloy composites and plasma-sprayed, co-deposited fluoride-nickel alloy composites are described. The importance of proper surface-conditioning of the composites is stressed. Performance of fluoride-metal composites in some machine application evaluations is discussed.
