The data are used to characterise the influence of the MWCNTs state in the UHMWPE matrix, and in the tribological performance of the composites loaded with different concentrations of MWCNTs. The dispersion state of MWCNTs in the polymer matrix was assessed, along with the hardness and the wear performance. The tribological response was studied by evaluating the wear rate, fricition coefficient and wear debris.
