Wear – Resistant Cast Steels

Jan Głownia


Steel castings are chosen for several wear conditions as elements of machines working in mining, transport and military industries. They work mainly in contact with ceramic materials (quartz sands, different ores, water-solid particles). In general, castings work with abrasion condition with high stresses. This chapter shows the types of wear, effect of hardness, load, and temperatures on weight losses. In the present work, the microstructure of used grades, their heat treatment and mechanical properties are shown.
