Investigation of the Friction Properties of Halogenated Modification on the Surface of Nitrile Rubber
Using a variety of halogenated treatments (fluoridation, bromide treatment, iodide treatment and others) on the surface of nitrile rubber, explore the reaction mechanism and its effect on the friction properties of nitrile rubber. The results showed that halogenated treatments on the surface of nitrile rubber can significantly improve the friction properties: the roughness of treated rubber surface becomes better and the density of surface increases, friction coefficient and wear significantly decrease. Among them, the fluoride treatment is the best, followed by mixture treatment, bromide treatment is relatively little worse.
