Tribological behavior of Cu–MoS2 and Ag–MoS2 nanocomposite lubricant was studied. Cu nanoparticles produced by electrical explosion of copper wires and Ag nanoparticles prepared by electrospark erosion were employed as metal cladding modifiers of MoS2 nanolamellar particles. The tribological tests showed Cu–MoS2 and Ag–MoS2 nanocomposite lubricants changed the friction coefficient of the initial grease and essentially improved its wear resistance.
