Abstract : Steel, bronze, or stainless steel shafts were rotated at 0.25 m-sec linear velocity and at a given loading in annular bearings made of resin P-68 (polyamide resin), submerged in deionized water. The loss of P-68 depended on the degree of cleanliness of the shaft. The attrition rates were greatest at the start, i.e., during the wearing-in period. Steel shafts caused more rapid wear than the stainless steel shafts since the former oxidize more readily, forming given abrasive particles. (Author)
