WEAR

 

The  wide applications of UHMWPE  include bio-medical material for artificial joint replacement, engineering bearing, valves and automotive.  Despite  the suitability of UHMWPE  for  these applications,  there are   still challenges on  the wear  problem that occur in UHMWPE  components, especially in bio-medical implant [9]. To overcome this problem, UHMWPE  composites were fabricated by adding reinforcing fibres and particle fillers. Wear and friction tests were performed using a pin-on-disc tester with a variable applied load sliding  speed against 400-grit SiC abrasive paper counter face.   Subsequently,  the worn surfaces and the  transfer  film  formed  were  observed  using  scanning  electron microscope  (SEM).
