..., and the quality of bonding with the matrix), and the operating conditions. Fibers are far more wear resistant than the matrix and hence control the wear of the composite. Continuous fiber-reinforced composites with a thermoset-polymer matrix (such as phenolics, epoxy, etc.) may have low wear rates and higher...
