Abstract
Enginseering plastics are increasingly used as bearing materials in applications demanding high contact loads and low sliding velocities. In these circumstances low and stable friction behaviour is desirable. In the present paper the frictional behaviour of some basic types of engineering plastics (PA6-G, POM and PET-P) and the influence of load and lubricant impregnation thereupon is experimentally investigated using a pin-on-disc type tribotester. It is found that POM-C internal lubricated with a solid lubricant shows the most favourable friction behaviour in comparison with the other tested materials. Adding internal lubrication may stabilize the friction behaviour but is not always the case.
