Abstract

This paper is aimed to evaluate the effect of nanoclay incorporation on wear properties of basalt fiber reinforced polymer (BFRP) composites at different wear conditions; such as adhesive, abrasive and erosive. The materials used were epoxy polymer, unidirectional basalt fiber, and nanoclay filler with three different content, i.e. 1.0, 3.0 and 5.0 wt%. The composites underwent pin-on-disc, abrasion resistance and slurry erosion tests at 30N load, 300rpm velocity and 10000m distance. The results showed that nanoclay inclusion has improved wear properties of BFRP composite when tested in adhesive and erosive conditions. However, in abrasive condition the wear properties were reduced.
