Wear Resistance of Plastics

The rating that appears in this table refers to the wear properties of the material in a bearing or bush application, and is normally tested using a Pin-on-Disc wear test. It should be noted that this data does not refer to the abrasion properties of the material, which is normally tested by using a Sand-Slurry test, which provides the abrasion resistance of the material when particles rub or slide over the material. The plastic wear resistance chart ranks our materials out of 20 = best wearing. This comparison is done at ambient conditions. It is important to note that at elevated Temp different products may perform differently in respect to the ranking shown here. Refer to Dotmar technical staff for assistance.
