Abstract

The friction and wear of thin polyimide films were measured as functions of polyimide structure, sliding speed, and temperature in a pin-on-disk machine. A 5 N load pressed a stationary 52100 steel ball against the rotating 50 mu m thick polyimide film solvent cast on a 410 stainless steel disk. The wear rates were significantly affected by structural differences which resulted from the different dianhydrides and diamines from which the polyimides were synthesized. The wear rates were lowest for the most flexible molecular chains as indicated by the glass transition temperatures.
