An experimental investigation was carried out to study the effect of reinforcement fibres, solid lubricants, mass of abrasives and load in three-body abrasive wear situations on various polyaryletherketone (PAEK) matrix. Three-body abrasive wear studies were carried out using a rubber wheel abrasion test (RWAT) rig. In the present investigation, angular silica sand particles of size ranging between 150 and 300 fim were used as dry and loose abrasives. The ketone/ether ratios among the selected… CONTINUE READING
