Mesophase pitch-based carbon fibres have excellent resistance to plastic deformation (up to 840 GPa); however, they have very low strain to failure (0.3) and are considered brittle. Hence, the development of pitch fibre precursors able to be plastically deformed without fracture is important. We have previously, successfully developed pitch-based precursor fibres with high ductility (low brittleness) by blending pitch and linear low-density polyethylene. Here, we extend our research to study how the extrusion dwell time (0, 6, 8, and 10 min) affects the physical properties (microstructure) of blend fibres. Scanning electron microscopy of the microstructure showed that by increasing the extrusion dwell from 0 to 10 min the pitch and polyethylene components were more uniformly dispersed. The tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, and strain at failure for the extruded fibres for different dwell times were measured. Increased dwell time resulted in an increase in strain to failure but reduced the ultimate tensile strength. Thermogravimetric analysis was used to investigate if increased dwell time improved the thermal stability of the samples. This study presents a useful guide to help with the selection of mixes of linear low-density polyethylene/pitch blend, with an appropriate extrusion dwell time to help develop a new generation of potential precursors for pitch-based carbon fibres.

Abstract The tribology performance of two carbon fibre-reinforced polyether-ether-ketones (450FC30 and WG101) sliding against stainless steel 3Cr13 and 3Cr13 coated with aluminium oxide (Al2O3), tungsten carbide (WC) and diamond-like carbon (DLC) under dry friction and water lubrication were studied to reduce the coefficient of friction and improve the wear resistance of water-lubricated bearings. The friction and wear mechanism of different tribopairs were determined via pin-on-disc sliding tests. Experimental results showed that the WG101/Al2O3 tribopair exhibited excellent wear resistance under dry friction and water lubrication. Carbon fibres were exposed on the friction surface of WG101 when WG101 slid against Al2O3. These carbon fibres bore most of the load to reduce wear. This work provides a practical basis for selecting the optimal tribopair for water-lubricated bearings.
