  • The potential of Superior Graphite (RGC39A graphite) in a model lipseal formulation was evaluated for abrasion resistance for a wide range of loads. The coefficient of friction tester is based on ASTM D 3702 – Test Method for Wear Rate and Coefficient of Friction of Materials in Self-Lubricated Rubbing Contact Using a Thrust Washer Testing Machine. The role of graphite type on key properties was determined. The evaluations included tensile properties, hardness, Phillips dispersion, abrasion resistance and coefficient of friction. The abrasion and COF test varied the counter surface (dry and oil bath) and the load (pressure) from 50 to 800 psi.
