The aim of tribotechnological research is the reduction of tribo-couple wear through the optimization of the functional properties of the materials. Polymer matrix composites enriched by powdered materials (e.g. metal-ceramic composite powders) have a wide range of applications in the field of tribotechnology. The possibilities of producing such fillers via green, environmentally-friendly syntheses using the high-energy ball milling process are presented.
