    Thermoplastics can be susceptible to

    wear and fatigue

    Wear – 耐磨

    The primary mechanism for

    thermoplastic wear is adhesive wear

    Frictional heat causes material to

    transfer from one part to the other

    Wear Additives

    PTFE – 聚四氟乙烯 Carbon Fiber – 碳纤维 Graphite – 石墨粉末

    • Workhorse additive • Homogeneously mixed

    thru polymer matrix

    • Compatible with nearly all thermoplastic resins

    • Aqueous environments • Excellent temperature

    resistance

    • Black (charcoal gray) color

    • Improved bearing capabilities

    • Electrically and thermally conductive

    • Less abrasive than glass

  • YOUR GLOBAL COMPOUNDER OF CUSTOM ENGINEERED THERMOPLASTICS

    Wear Additives

    Silicone Aramid Fiber MoS2

    • Boundary lubricant • Excellent friction reducer • Used with PTFE to

    eliminate “break-in”

    period

    • Nucleating agent in nylon: creates harder

    surface

    • High affinity to metal: smoother

    mating=lower wear

    • Very gentle to mating surface

    • Improves wear and friction
