Plastic Wear Resistance –Wear Resistance of Engineering Thermoplastics

Wear occurs when two materials under load slide against each other. This wear occurs in such devices as rotating shafts. The wear resistance of a material is the measure of material loss in a Pin-on-disc test, under recorded loads, speeds, temperatures and surface roughness.

The plastic wear resistance chart ranks our materials out of 20 = best wearing. This comparison is done at ambient conditions. It is important to note that at elevated Temp different products may perform differently in respect to the ranking shown here – refer Dotmar technical staff for assistance.
