Friction and wear properties of AAO templates were calculated in affinity to pore dimensions and applied load. Homogeneously uniformly decorative synthesized by anodization of nanoporous aluminium oxide films having 65-95 ?m thick and pores of 143.5, 105, 84.4 nm diameter. A tribological competency of the material checked out with loads and 250 rpm on a pin on disc wear test rig at dry conditions. The wear resistance of the anodized AAO sample increased by 25% compared to the non-anodized sample. The pore density little bit impressed the frictional characters of AAO template. This course template basically contributes to the reduction of friction distrait the pore structure by proving energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS).
Key words : Friction, wear, anodic aluminium oxide, pore diameter
