Abstract:

With respect to the magnitude of the friction coefficient, FRP falls in the class of friction materials. The wear of FRP is 4 times less than that of steel during dry sliding friction over cast iron. During work in aqueous media the FRP loses its wear resistance to a considerable degree. Surface-active additives which are commonly used for metals do not guarantee a reduction in wear of FRP during friction in aqueous media. It is necessary to conduct a special study of antiwear additives which might be suitable for FRP pipes. Author, modified-PL
