Atomic Force Microscopy of Sintered and Thermoplastic Polyimide Surfaces after Macroscopic Wear Tests

Abstract:

Article Preview

Polyimide surfaces after macroscopic wear at 80 to 260°C are studied by atomic force microscopy to give additional insight in the tribophysical and -chemical processes during sliding. Three sliding regimes are distinguished with hydrolysis resulting in rough surfaces, imidisation resulting in orientation of polymer molecules and melting resulting in short-range arrangements.
