Water lubrication of PTFE composites

Water lubrication of PTFE composites Purpose – The paper aims to present results on the friction and the wear of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and eight commercially available composites with PTFE matrix, for tests done on shoe/roller tribotester with water lubrication in open circuit. There are pointed out particular tribological processes within the superficial layers of the composites with the help of optical microscopy. Design/methodology/approach – Analysing the tribological behaviour of eight grades of PTFE composites sliding in water on shoe/roller tribotester. Findings – Good results of wear behaviour under water lubrication for all the composites. PTFE exhibits severe wear under the tested regime. Originality/value – The research could support PTFE composite application for water lubricated systems. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Industrial Lubrication and Tribology Emerald Publishing
