The main goal of this paper is to design and justify optimized compositions of thermoplastic–matrix wear-resistant composites based on polyetheretherketone (PEEK) and polyphenylene sulfide (PPS). Their mechanical and tribological properties have been specified in the form of bilateral and unilateral limits. For this purpose, a material design methodology has been developed. It has enabled to determine the optimal degrees of filling of the PEEK- and PPS-based composites with carbon microfibers and polytetrafluoroethylene particles. According to the results of tribological tests, the PEEK-based composites have been less damaged on the metal counterpart than the PPS-based samples having the same degree of filling. Most likely, this was due to more uniform permolecular structure and greater elasticity of the matrix. The described methodology is versatile and can be used to design various composites. Its implementation does not impose any limits on the specified properties of the material matrix or the reinforcing inclusions. The initial data on the operational characteristics can be obtained experimentally or numerically. The methodology enables to design the high-strength wear-resistant composites which are able to efficiently operate both in metal–polymer and ceramic–polymer friction units. View Full-Text
