In the article the test results of the developed material of elastomeric lip seals are presented. It was proved that the introduction of even 0,5% carbon nanotubes in structure of a standard elastomer contributes to the increase of its wear resistance and the decrease of its friction coefficient.

Keywords: nanomaterial, carbon nanotubes, wear resistance
