Regular degradation of rubbers contribute frequent maintenance of conveyer belt system. This paper investigates wear rate and mechanisms of rubber and associated influential parameters based on the information available in literature. Abrasion, fatigue and roll formation are dominate wear mechanisms that are influenced by load, sliding velocity, hardness and friction. Correlations among influential parameters and their effect on rubber wear was established in details. Archad's equation does not work for rubber wear but researchers have proposed equations similar to that. Adhesion wear forms roll in the smooth surface when tear strength of rubber is low. Wear caused by adhesion is abrasion when surface texture is harsh. Hysteresis enhances fatigue wear if the substrate asperities are round or blunt.

Tribo-electrochemical behaviour of 316L stainless steel: The effects of contact configuration, tangential speed, and wear mechanismSalasi, Mobin; Stachowiak, Gwidon; Stachowiak, G. (2015)Tribo-electrochemical behaviour of 316L stainless steel was studied using three contact configurations: two-body ceramic counterface (2B-CC), three-body rubber counterface (3B-RC) and three-body ceramic counterface (3B-CC). ...
