New Research Center Aims to Clear Tribology Hurdles

Thursday, January 26, 2006
 
A new independent nonprofit research center dedicated to the study of coatings and tribology—the science of friction and wear—has opened in northern Illinois. The Institute of Tribology and Coatings, Sugar Grove, IL, will focus initial efforts on the needs and practicalities of end users, by devising test procedures and equipment for evaluating new coatings and other life-extension technologies. The facility’s first project is for the U.S. Army with funding championed by Speaker of the House, U.S. Rep. Dennis Hastert. For more information, visit www.tribologyinstitute.com.
