The formation of structure and properties of antifriction composites via modification of polytetrafluoroethylene with polydispersive fillers


The structural modification in polytetrafluoroethylene with introduction of polydispersive fillers is studied. Nanoscale fillers are shown to exhibit a higher level of structural activity and effectively impact the mechanical and tribotechnical properties of polymeric composites, especially with the use of complex modifiers.
