Tribology is the engineering of contact surfaces: guided movements, mechanical adjustments and sealing adjustments. This includes the study and application of principles of friction, lubrication, wear and corrosion. In the particular case of mould technology, a special kind of Tribology must be considered, when sealing surfaces are subject to alternate constraints. 

Tribology is considered as one interdisciplinary science because there is interdisciplinary knowledge applied from the areas of physics, chemistry, mechanics, projecting, material science, lubrication technology, as well as ergonomics, business economy, management, industrial methods etc.

The big expenses in the field of tribology, as an economics and ecology progress, are the basic reasons for increased research in the areas of friction control and wearing and lubricant reduction.
