Friction and wear are reported for monolithic glassy carbon and a composite made of copper fibers in a glassy carbon matrix. The friction coefficient is shown to be comparable to reported values for typical graphitic and copper-graphite specimens, and the wear is shown to be exceptionally low. Replacement of ambient oxygen by nitrogen does not lead to accelerated wear or dusting.
