Oxidation Wear Mechanism of Cast Steels

Abstract—The pin-on-disk wear tests were performed in elevated temperature air at 350 ºC for cast steel with different composition. Morphology, structureand oxidation films were measured by using XRD, SEM and TEM.The mechanism of wear was thus clarified. Under elevated temperature air at 350 ºC, typical oxidation wear was presented in the cast steels. Duringsliding oxidation of worn surface takes place. The oxide film formed is one of the main factor in determining wear rate which correlates with Quinn’s oxidation wear theory
