Abstract The article presents the results of the tribologycal investigation of nuclear-modificated fluoroplastic – 4, using non-ionic additive surface-active substances (SAS) and their combinations with ionic ones. The results prove positive influence of the combination SAS4+SAS5, self-organizing under the condition of 1 mass. % in water, on the value of the surface roughness before and after friction.
