Low-Modulus Carbon Fibers for Antifriction Сarbon Plastics
The effect of nanostructures of low-modulus carbon fibers and the properties of the epoxy matrix of antifriction carbon plastics on the processes occurring during frictional interaction with stainless steel in an aqueous medium is considered. The reasons for high tribological characteristics of antifriction carbon plastics based on low-modulus carbon fibers are explained. It is shown that the high antifriction properties and wear resistance of such carbon plastics are due to the structure of low-modulus carbon fibers, high sorption capacity of the carbon plastics, and formation of a graphite-like film in the friction zone.
