Figure 8 shows the existence of surface polishing, microcracking, and detachment of wear particle.
Increase in surface roughness along the scratch groove is due to localized plastic deformation, crazing, microcracking, fish-scale formation, plowing developed during the scratch process and can be correlated with the scratch depth for some polymers (2).
Nanofillers can prevent microcracking and, hence, toughen composites.
While this flexural capacity does meet industry requirements, it is accompanied by distributed microcracking, which might cause concern for material durability under harsh environmental conditions and mechanical loads.
