Abstract: Sliding wear. behavior of. composites basalt-epoxy. (BE), carbon-epoxy. (CE) & glass-epoxy. (GE) were examined. using pin. on disc.-sliding wear for. various abrading. distances and. at constant rpm. Weight loss. and specific. wear rates. were determined. depending on the. load and abrading. distance. With Higher. load and abrading. distance, higher. weight loss, while. with increased abrading. distance and. load decreases. in specific. wear. rates. Compared to GE. and CE. composite better. wear resistance. in BE composite. was observed. The test specimens. are analyzed. using the scanning. electron microscope (SEM) and shows that. glass fiber. and carbon fiber. suffer more damage. than basalt fiber. Good interface adhesion. between epoxy. and basalt fiber. has also been. observed., this leads. to good resistance. to wear. The mechanical. properties. of epoxy composites. strengthened by basalt., carbon and. glass fabric. were evaluated. Scanning electron microscopy has. been utilized. to study wear. mechanism using. worn surface analysis.
