Wear can be defined as damage to a solid surface caused by the removal or displacement of material through mechanical action associated with contact with a mating surface. Plastic components are used in a wide range of demanding applications in which they are subjected to surface damage and wear. These commonly include:
Wear of plastics is a relatively common failure mechanism that needs to be understood to avoid component malfunction and breakdown. This webinar will address the mechanisms of wear in plastics.
Plastic wear is affected by several factors that may be generally categorized into mechanical, environmental, and thermal aspects. These three groups of factors essentially determine the mechanism of wear of a plastic surface when it comes in contact with another surface.
The topics covered as part of this presentation will include:
