|Abstract:||Abrasive wear behaviour of polysulfone (PSU), an amorphous, brittle and high temperature engineering thermoplastic material, and its composites were investigated by using pin-on-disc machine against silicon carbide (SiC) abrasive paper under multipass conditions. Abrasive wear studies were conducted under various testing conditions such as sliding distance,load, velocity, and abrasive grit size. It was observed that neat PSU showing better wear performance than glass fibre reinforced PSU in most of the experimental conditions. These results may be attributed to the reinforcement, greatly reducing ultimate elongation to fracture, which in turn is key factor in abrasive wear performance. Worn sample surfaces were studied with Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM).|
