The Influence of Plasma Surface Treatment of Carbon Fibers on the Flexural and Tribological Properties of UHMWPE Composite
In this paper, the wear performance of a ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene composites filled with carbon fiber (CF/UHMWPE) were studied using a pin-on-disc method. The effects of surface treatment of CF and sliding load and on the friction and wear of the CF/UHMWPE composite are reported. It was observed that the sliding load is an important controlling factors; its effect is diminished when the CF is modified.
