This research investigates the influence of graphite's granulometry on the dry sliding behavior of a copper-free friction material against pearlitic cast iron. Samples were designed and fabricated using three different types of commercial natural graphite. A sample without graphite was also considered as a reference. Tests were carried out with a pin-on-disc tribometer at room temperature (RT), at 400 °C, and at RT after the high temperature tests. The results show that both the shape and size of the graphite particles influence the coefficient of friction and the specific wear rate. The friction material featuring a lower particle size and equiaxed grains of natural graphite exhibits a better behavior, as compared to coarser graphite with plate-like grains. The results were obtained comparing specific characteristics (i.e., morphology and chemical composition) of the friction layers formed on each friction material under the different testing conditions.

Abstract

This research investigates the influence of graphite's granulometry on the dry sliding behavior of a copper-free friction material against pearlitic cast iron. Samples were designed and fabricated using three different types of commercial natural graphite. A sample without graphite was also considered as a reference. Tests were carried out with a pin-on-disc tribometer at room temperature (RT), at 400 °C, and at RT after the high temperature tests. The results show that both the shape and size of the graphite particles influence the coefficient of friction and the specific wear rate. The friction material featuring a lower particle size and equiaxed grains of natural graphite exhibits a better behavior, as compared to coarser graphite with plate-like grains. The results were obtained comparing specific characteristics (i.e., morphology and chemical composition) of the friction layers formed on each friction material under the different testing conditions.
