The Tribological Properties of PA6/UHMPE Blended Short Carbon Fiber Nanoclay Filled Nanocomposites
The sliding wear behavior of polyamide6/ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (PA6/UHMWPE, 90/10) blends loaded with 20 % carbon short fibers (CSF) as reinforcement and varying amounts of nanoclay filled nanocomposites were reported. Sliding wear loss, specific wear rate and coefficient of friction were investigated. 3 % nano clay filled composite exhibits better wear behaviour. Morphological study was evaluated for wear out surfaces of the composites using scanning electron microscopy.
