The dry friction properties of three engineering thermoplastics, ultra high‐molecular‐weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), polyoxymethylene (POW) and polyamide 66 (PA 66), have been investigated using a plane on plane contact. During running‐in, the steady‐state of the friction coincides with stable values for the surface temperature of the slider. The proper trend as well as the correct order of magnitude are observed between the measured surface temperatures and those calculated using the equation of Lanc…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
