The Effect of PTFE on the Mechanical and Friction and Wear Properties of GF/PA6 Composites
The effects of PTFE on the tensile and tribological properties of glass fiber reinforced polyamide 6(PA6) composites were studied. Tribological tests were conducted on an M2000 friction and wear tester using a block-on-ring arrangement. It was observed that the PTFE played a main role in the tensile-resistant and wear-resistant properties of the PA6 composites. The tensile properties were ruled by the fiber–matrix adhesion. And the excellent tribological performance of the PTFE fillers improved the tribological properties of PA6 composites.
