This study investigated experimentally the wear volume loss of the epoxy reinforced
by (Al) and (Al2O3) particles of grain size ( £ 30 mm) with different four volume
fractions of the reinforcements which are (3 %, 6 %, 9 %, and 12 % Vol.). Pin-on-Disc
wear test were conducted to exam the wear volume loss behavior of the composite
specimens. The wear test results indicated that the wear volume loss of the specimen
increases with the increase of the applied load and sliding time, while it decreases with
the increase of the volume fraction of the reinforcing material. Also the results show that
the average volume loss of the epoxy reinforced by (Al) was higher than reinforced by
(Al2O3) by the value was (45 % ) at volume fraction (= 6 %), sliding speed (Vs =2
m/sec.) and sliding time ( T =300 sec.)
