Abstract:

The friction coefficient of a medium pressure polyethylene bearing against a steel roller is 0.3 to 0.17 at 7.7 to 19.5 kgsq. cm. loading and 0.9 msec. linear velocity. Increasing the laoding to greater than 19.5 kgsq. cm. causes the flattening of polyethylene and its bonding to steel. The friction coefficient in water decreases. The wear of polyethylene due to friction is decreased when water lubricates the working surfaces. Author, modified-PL
