The effect of tungsten carbide (WC) particulate fillers incorporation on two-body abrasive wear behaviour of glass fabric reinforced-epoxy (GE) composites was investigated and findings are interpreted. The wear behaviour of the composites were performed using pin-on-disc tester at varying abrasive distances viz., 25,50,75 and 100 m at a constant load of 20 N. The experiment was conducted using two different water proof silicon carbide (SiC) abrasive papers and at two different velocity under… Expand
