Reciprocating Sliding Wear of Nylon and Polyacetal Against Steel

나일론과 폴리아세탈의 왕복동 마찰마멸특성에 관한 고찰

  • Published : 2000.03.01


Nylon, Polyacetal and PTFE were studied to gain a better understanding of their tribological behavior. Wear tests were conducted with reciprocating motion under dry sliding conditions. Friction coefficient and specific wear rate were measured as a function of sliding distance. The worn surfaces were examined with a Scanning Electron Microscope(SEM). Polyacetal showed lowest specific wear rates and PTFE exhibited lowest friction coefficient. The dominant wear mechanism found were adhesion and abrasion
