STUDY OF WEAR RESISTANCE AND HARDNESS PROPERTY FOR POLYMERIC BLENDS

Abstract

This work includes preparation binary and ternary polymeric blends by Hand lay-up molding from Epoxy resin, Unsaturated polyester and polyvinyl chloride ( PVC) with different weight ratios. The wear resistance (which includes change in applied load and hardness (shore)) were study before and after immersion in (HCL) solution with (0.3) normality. The experimental results show that the wear rate was increased with increasing applied load and immersion time. Also the results show that shore hardness was decreased after immersion in (HCL) solution.
