Summary

Friction and wear properties of a Lanxide silicon carbide particulate-reinforced alumina composite containing some residual metal (SiC/Al2O3/M) were determined using a block-on-ring test under lubricated conditions at 75°-85°C. The composite blocks showed excellent wear resistance against heat-treated 4140 steel rings and could be loaded up to 2220 N without undergoing scuffing or any other type of catastrophic wear damage. Hot pressed silicon carbide, sintered silicon carbide, and sialon also showed a similar behavior against 4140 steel. Nodular cast iron and alumina were found to be significantly inferior to silicon nitride, silicon carbide, sialon, and the Lanxide SiC/Al2O3/M composite.
