An attempt has been made to study the influence of wear parameters like applied load, sliding speed, sliding distance on the dry sliding wear of polytetrafluroethylene (PTFE), PTFE + 25% glass and PTFE + 40% bronze composites. Experiments, based on the techniques of Taguchi, were performed to acquire data in a controlled way. An orthogonal array and the analysis of variance were employed to investigate the influence of process parameters on the wear of composites. The worn surfaces were examined using scanning electron microscope (SEM). The experimental results show that sliding distance and applied load were found to be the more significant factors among the other control factors on wear. The objective is to establish a correlation between dry sliding wear of composites and wear parameters. These correlations were obtained by multiple regressions. A good agreement between the predicted and actual wear resistance was seen.
