Abstract:

Twenty-five self-lubricating composites, both plastic and metal- based, were compared on the LFW-1 tester in the oscillatory mode of a 75-degree arc and 200 cycles per minute by use of test loads of 30, 60, and 120 pounds. For the plastic-based composites, epoxy resin plus graphite fibers or polyamide resin plus graphite gave the best results when tested against steel, whereas polyimide resin plus graphite and PTFE or polyamide resin plus PTFE gave the best results when tested against hard-anodized aluminum.
