Abstract

In this effort, the tribological behavior of epoxy resin filled with treated ceramic carbides fillers has been investigated. The epoxy matrix composite was prepared with different weight fraction (0, 5, 10 and 15%) separately for both silicon and boron carbides ceramic particles using hand-lay methodology. The wear characteristics represented by weight loss and coefficient of friction at different average load (30, 40, 50 N) with two sliding velocity (2.5, 5 m/s) and constant sliding distance. It was noticed from the acquired results, there is obvious improved in the wear behavior of epoxy resin when filled with treated ceramic carbide particles (especially boron carbides) related to unfilled epoxy resin and theses enhancement increased with increasing the weight fraction of fillers.
