Abstract

The friction and wear characteristics of newly developed wear resisting stainless steel, which was designed for improving friction and wear characteristics, were investigated with ring-on-disk test apparatuses under oil lubricating condition and non-lubricating condition in air and in vacuum. The friction and wear behaviors were compared with those of JIS SUS420J2 stainless steel. In case under non-lubricating condition in air and in vacuum, both friction coefficient at room temperature and wear amount of the wear resisting stainless steel were smaller than those of SUS420J2. The extent of transference of wear debris was comparatively small in case of the wear resisting stainless steel. In case under oil lubricating condition, the scuffing of the wear resisting stainless steel was hard to progress and the wear amount was also small even after scuffing occurrence. The wear resisting stainless steel had the superior anti-scuffing characteristics.
