Abstract


The present work is dealing with the study of a nano-compositional material which was obtained on the basis of PTFE with 2.5÷10wt% of core-shell type Fe-doped carbon nano-tubes and carbon nano-particles as fillers. The PTFE samples without the fillers were prepared too. Weight wear, friction coefficient and temperature were measured after passing some velocity steps, and afterwards the linear wear was calculated. The obtained results have shown that the incorporation of about 2,5÷5wt% of Fe-doped CNTs into PTFE matrix drastically improves the antifrictional properties in comparison to the unfilled PTFE. Namely, the wear resistance of these nanocompositions increased by the factor of 500-150 in the range of friction velocities 0.25÷1.25 m/sec. Increase of the filler portion up to 10wt% transforms the obtained nanocomposite from antifrictional to friction material with the enhanced coefficient of friction up to 0.32, but with the unexpectedly ultra-low wear. SEM-EDX analyses of the worn surfaces of the tested nanocomposites and the cast iron samples after working as a tribological pair, revealed some favorable effects of the Fe-doped CNTs filler on the formation mechanism of a transfer film and its role in promoting very low wear of the obtained new nanocomposites.
