Objective: In this present work, the SiO2 nanoparticles as filler materials and ABS as a matrix material taken for the injection molding process to prepare the specimens, after that, to study the enhancement of mechanical properties and wear performance of composite materials. Method/Findings: SiO2 nano particles are added to Acrylonitrile Butadiene styrene(ABS) polymer composites at various weight fractions. It is also found that tensile strength, hardness, and wear properties improved in reinforcement. A pin-on-disc type friction and wear monitor (ASTM G99) was employed to evaluate wear behavior of ABS/SiO2 polymer composites. In this experimental study, the input process parameters such as load, sliding distance, and speed are considered and optimized for the composite materials’ properties. Tensile tests and wear tests were conducted to examine, and the properties of the material were studied. Morphology of the fractured material was studied using SEM analysis. The wear debris observed to explore the flacks and groves of the content during wear test for this study Orthogonal array (L9) and control parameters. Applications/Improvements : The significant contributions of this work are the decrease of ultimate strength with increasing content of SiO2 in the composites, and the sliding speed conversed to 45.51% of the wear rate variation. Mechanical and wear properties of ABS/SiO2 nanoparticles polymer composites were studied further.
