Tribological Properties and Wear Mechanism of Self-Lubricating Ni-P/PTFE


Article Preview

The self-lubrication Ni-P/PTFE co-coatings were obtained by chemical plating. The tribological properties of the co-coating were carried on by the MM-200 type abrasion, and the microstructure and compounds of this composition and surface morphology were described by using X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscope separately. The Ni-P/PTFE co-coating still had a low friction coefficient and good wear resistance. This was due to the PTFE material structure with the twisted chain, helical characteristics of carbon nanotubes, and the hexagonal structure in connection with many unusual mechanical and chemical properties.
