The effect of silicon carbide (SiC) particulate fillers incorporation on two-body abrasive wear behaviour of Glass Fabric - Epoxy (GE) composites was investigated and findings are analysed. The mechanical properties such as impact strength and surface hardness of the composites have also been reported. 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 10 N. The experiment was conducted… Expand
