Wear of engineering ceramics by a soft abrasive

Abstract:

The wear behaviour of a number of engineering ceramics sliding against polyethyleneterephthalate (PET) has been examined. Microscopical examination of the worn surfaces has shown a wide distribution of size of grooves, from 50 nm to 1 μm. The smaller grooves seem to be made by anatase particles in the PET sheet. The larger grooves are made by particles ejected from the samples' surfaces by a fatigue mechanism. By relating the hardness of the engineering ceramics at a scale appropriate to the ...
