Tribology of SU-8 polymer is increasingly relevant due to bursting use of this material in a variety applications. This study is directed towards introduction and investigation of a novel self-lubricating composite of an ionic liquid (IL)vin SU-8. The new material can be utilized for facrication of lubricating polymer coating with tunable surface properities or SU8-made elements for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) with enhanced tribological performance.
