Li, J and Hutchings, IM (1989) Resistance of cast polyurethane elastomers to solid particle erosion. Wear of Materials: International Conference on Wear of Materials. pp. 109-114. ISSN 0192-4990Full text not available from this repository.
The rates of erosive wear have been measured for a series of eight polyester-based one-component castable polyurethane elastomers, with widely varying mechanical properties. Erosion tests were conducted with airborne silica sand, 120μm in particle size, at an impact velocity of 50 ms-1 and impact angles of 30° and 90°. For these materials, which all showed similar values of rebound resilience, the erosion rate increased with increasing hardness, tensile modulus and tensile strength. These findings are at variance with those expected for wear by abrasion, perhaps because of differences in the strain rate or strain levels imposed on the elastomer during erosion and abrasion.
