Abstract (englisch):

MWCNT/HDPE nanocomposite spur gears prepared in concentrations of 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, and2.5% by weight using centrifugal ball milling dispersion method followed by CNC milling.SEM examination revealed a sound dispersion of the MWCNT in the HDPE matrix until2 wt.%. Nanocomposites exhibited higher decomposition temperature and thermal sta-bility than neat HDPE. Yield strength increased linearly in nanocomposites up to 2 wt.%,and then it saturated. Nanofillers' addition steadily increased the young's modulus up toa weight fraction of 1.5 %, surging rapidly between 1.5 to 2 wt.%. In contrast, its rate ofincrease declined between 2 and 2.5 wt.%. The Taber abrasion test showed a reduction inwear loss of nanocomposites. The nanocomposites' toughness increased between 0 (neatHDPE) and 1.5 wt.% of MWCNT but declined at higher concentrations due to transition fromductile to brittle nature. At a torque of 5 N-m, the wear performance increased consistentlywith the increase in the concentration of nanofillers. At 10 N-m, 2.5 wt.% nanocompos-ite gears displayed a decline due to the increased brittleness. Satisfactory dispersion anddeveloped interphase fervently contributed to the load transfer and mechanical properties.Nanofillers improved the wear resistance, hardness, and lowered plastic deformation. ... mehr
