The Friction Characteristic of the Squeeze Packing for Movement 2005-01-1752
This paper addresses the temperature dependence of friction properties in seals (O-rings and D-rings) for use in reciprocating motions. The narrower focus here is on several factors: the effects of a lubrication state, the change in dimension and the physical properties of a rubber material. It can be assumed that they influence the temperature dependence of a frictional force. As shown in this study, A frictional force has a profile characterized by temperatures. It is revealed that the profile of a frictional force is mainly attributable to the deformation of a rubber material in motion-the physical properties (elastic modulus) of a rubber materials-and the rate of recovery in elasticity of a rubber material. In addition, a temperature showing the maximum frictional force is largely attributable to the low-temperature properties of a rubber material. It is revealed that the temperature dependence of a frictional force is mainly influenced by the material properties of rubber. It is shown that a frictional force can be controlled by the material property of rubber-elastic modulus-and low-temperature properties.
