When you said material you did mean Fabric didn't you?
What's the most frictionless material ?What applications is it used for ?
One of the most spectacular results of these properties is known as the thermomechanical or "fountain effect". If a capillary tube is placed into a bath of superfluid helium and then heated, even by shining a light on it, the superfluid helium will flow up through the tube and out the top as a result of the Clausius-Clapeyron relation. A second unusual effect is that superfluid helium can form a layer, a single atom thick, up the sides of any container in which it is placed.A more fundamental property than the disappearance of viscosity becomes visible if superfluid is placed in a rotating container. Instead of rotating uniformly with the container, the rotating state consists of quantized vortices. That is, when the container is rotated at speed below the first critical velocity (related to the quantum numbers for the element in question) the liquid remains perfectly stationary. Once the first critical velocity is reached, the superfluid will very quickly begin spinning at the critical speed. The speed is quantized - i.e. it can only spin at certain speeds.

QuoteWhat's the most frictionless material ?Without being ambigous I think the anwser is probably Teflon which is Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) QuoteWhat applications is it used for Many uses but have you fried anything lately 
Wet ice on wet ice also has a pretty low coeficient of friction.
