Abstract : The effect of composition on the wear resistance of plastics was studied. Wear was related qualitatively to friction, strength, and ductility. Two types of wear were analyzed: ordinary wear due to repeated surface deformation, and abrasive wear due to microcutting of the surface. Equations are given for both types of wear. The temperature dependence of friction and wear were given for a vinyl plastic rubbed across steel. The wear rate of polyethylene and epoxy, abraded on a grating, was given as a function of temperature. (Author)
