Abstract

To develop higher strength and wear-resistant polymer composites, which are based on ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), the mechanical and tribotechnical characteristics of UHMWPE filled with wollastonite microfibers and aluminum metahydroxide AlO(OH) microparticles, preliminarily treated (functionalized) in polyorganosiloxane to increase the adhesion of the fillers to the matrix, have been studied. The choice of the fillers and the adhesion promoter for the ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene matrix is determined by the search of effective commercially available fillers and surface modifiers to design wear resistant polymeric composites for friction units in mechanical engineering. The chemical and permolecular structure and the wear track surface topography of UHMWPE composites have been investigated under dry sliding friction at different loads and sliding velocities.
