Film lubrication using steam and water is one of the least explored areas of technology. However, in recent years, research in this area has progressed significantly, opening up new opportunities for the use of quasicrystalline films.

Quasicrystalline films are ordered structures that have unusual properties such as high hardness, low coefficient of friction, and corrosion resistance. They are widely used in industries such as aviation, energy and mechanical engineering.

The process of lubrication of quasicrystalline films with steam and water is based on research showing that steam and water can remove friction and ensure smooth movement between films. The steam used in the process has high energy and is able to penetrate the pores of the films, providing a more uniform and effective coating.

One of the key advantages of lubrication of quasicrystalline films with steam and water is its environmental friendliness. Unlike many traditional lubricants that contain toxic and harmful substances, steam and water are environmentally friendly and do not cause negative consequences for the environment. Another advantage of this method is its economic feasibility. Steam and water are cheap and readily available resources, making the lubrication process for quasicrystalline films more efficient and cost-effective.

However, despite all the advantages, lubrication of quasicrystalline films with steam and water still requires further research and optimization. Various factors such as temperature, pressure and time must be taken into account to achieve the best lubrication results.

In general, lubrication of quasicrystalline films with steam and water represents a promising and innovative direction in the field of using quasicrystalline materials. Its environmental safety and economic feasibility make this method attractive to industry. However, further research and optimization of the process is necessary to realize its full potential.
