Engineering material is a generalized definition of materials intended for manufacturing parts of machines and mechanisms. The development of engineering materials creates the basis for designing more efficient techniques, stimulates productivity, as well as energy- and material-saving in industry. The best engineering materials, which are, as a rule, bearing elements of machines, are imparting at the same time antifrictional and nonpermeable properties to joints, retard crevice corrosion, etc. Elaboration of such materials is an intricate scientific and technical problem. The materials science experience proves electret effect to be one of the promising ways of solving the problem.
