In this paper, influence of different nano particles such as ……….. on the wear behavior of a vinyl ester resin composites is reported. Nano silica particles, functionalized with a bi-functional coupling agent, methacyloxypropyl-trimethoxysilane (MPS) is found to improve the wear resistance as well as the tensile strength of the fabricated vinyl ester resin nano composite. The uniform particle dispersion and chemical bond between nano particle and vinyl ester resin was observed. Wear behavior of the resin with silica, zinc oxide and alumina nano particles were studied using taber abrasive wear tester. Wear test was conducted for different load conditions and distances. Experimental result showed that vinyl ester resin with nanosilica particles had significantly improved the wear resistance than alumina and zinc oxide nancomposites.
