Abstract The work presents results of the research on the influence of carbon nanotubes, which are known to be potentially mesogenic in lyotropic systems, introduced into elastomer material on the wear of this material. The wear rates data obtained for standard samples and for the samples filled with nanoparticles have been compared with the published earlier data of other authors. The preliminary conclusions on the influence of variation of elastomeric material structure on its wear were made. The authors aim further research of coatings wear with the help of a tribological test stand as well as the modelling process by numerical methods using Abaqus software package.
