A method of tribological testing of models with such sliding friction using a simple pin-on-disc mechanism was presented. Wear resistance indicators of unfilled polyamides PA6, PA66 and composites based on polyamide PA6+30GF, PA6+30CF, PA6+MoS2, PA6 and oil coupled with steel C45 are determined. They, as polymeric materials with the property of self-lubrication, they are often used in metal-polymer dry friction bearings. Based on them, wear resistance characteristics of these polymeric materials at sliding friction are established. They are used as basic parameters for developed by authors mathematical model of material wear kinetics at sliding friction and analytical research method of metal-polymer sliding bearings research. For comparative assessment of wear resistance of the investigated polymeric materials, their wear resistance diagrams are constructed. Thef show the functional dependence of wear resistance on specific friction forces. It is proved that the wear resistance of materials nonlinearly depends on specific pressure, i.e., the specific friction forces. Qualitative and quantitative influence of the type and structure of fillers (which improve the tribological properties of the base polymer PA6) on their wear resistance has been established. The forecast estimation of durability of metal polymer bearings made of the specified polyamides by the author's method of calculation taking into account their various wear resistance, characteristics of elasticity and conditions of dry friction is carried out. The research results are presented graphically, which facilitates their understanding and analyses.
