Abstract [en]

Carbon fiber composites were prepared in order to study the influence of fillers (polyamide 6; PA6) on the tensile and tribological properties of polypropylene (PP) composites. Tensile fracture mechanism was discussed based on the tensile testresults. Tribological tests were conducted on a Mobile Remote Handler-3 (MRH-3) friction and wear tester using a block-on-ring arrangement. It was observed that the carbon fiber (CF) played a main role in the tensile-resistant and wear-resistant properties of the CF/PP composites. The tensile properties were ruled by the fiber–matrix adhesion. Moreover, the excellent tribological performance of the CF/PA6/PP composite is consistent with the worn surface morphology shown.
