Reinforcements in the form of fibres, fabric, whiskers, or particles are embedded in the matrix to produce the composite. They are usually stronger and stiffer than the matrix and provide the primary load-carrying capability of the composite. DE Composite materials possess excellent wear resistance, high specific strength, good dimensional stability, durability and long-term resistance to severe chemical environments.
The additions of solid friction modifiers such as PTFE and graphite enhance the wear properties and life of the materials, enabling them to be operated at higher speeds and loads.
