Fretting remains a major cause of connector failure and can impair reliability in complex systems like automotive applications. Tin is particularly previous to fretting phenomena; we report here the first results of an analysis of tin and lubricated tin contacts, based on the analysis of the friction or slip regimes and the electrical behaviour. Lubricant properties are analysed in terms of friction behaviour and the effect of a special additive is examined.
