The effect of fulleroid modificators and carbon fibers on tribological properties of polymer nanocomposites based on thermoplastic polymeric matrixes (polyamide 6) was investigated. It was shown that fulleroid modificators insertion makes it possible to decrease the friction factor of polymer composites and improve mechanical and tribological properties of composites. The using of carbon fibers for polyamide 6 modification at mechanical properties growth leads to the friction factor growth on steel more than twice as compared with the initial polymer matrix.
