Paper Title:
Effect of Various Nanoparticles on Friction and Wear Properties of Glass Fiber Reinforced Epoxy Composites
  Abstract

The glass fiber (GF) reinforced epoxy (EP) composites filled by nano-Al2O3, nano-TiO2, nano-SiO2 and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were prepared. The friction and wear behavior of composites under dry condition were evaluated with block-on-ring friction and wear tester. The morphologies of the worn surfaces of the composites were analyzed by scanning electric microscopy (SEM). The results show that 0.5 wt% MWCNTs and nano-TiO2 can significantly lower the friction coefficient and specific wear rate of composites, respectively, while 0.5 wt% nano-SiO2 and nano-Al2O3 can slightly lower the friction coefficient and specific wear rate of the composites.
