The article "Failure Mechanisms in Plastic Gears " appeared in the January/February 2002 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Plastics as gear materials represent an interesting development for gearing because they offer high strength-to-weight ratios, ease of manufacture and excellent tribological properties (Refs. 1-7). In particular, there is a sound prospect that plastic gears can be applied for power transmission of up to 10 kW (Ref. 6).
