Abstract
The influence of sliding velocity and nominal pressure on the tribological behaviour of epoxy resin-inox steel couples is analysed in dry sliding cond itions, on a pin-disc configuration. The patterns observed for the friction coefficient, wear coefficient and estimated surface temperature have been correlated to the surface morphology of both pin and disc as results from S EM analysis and profilometric traces, and a preliminary explanation of the contact process is proposed. Fatigue wear (the prevalent mechanism) and adh esive wear appear strongly influenced by the combined action of sliding vel ocity (affecting interface dynamics and deformation mode) and nominal press ure (which controls interfacial stress). Differences in the action of the t wo variables apparently result from the particular thermal state induced in the polymer, as well as from the quantity and the morphology of wear debri s.
