- The objective is to establish quantitative relations between microstructure and wear resistance for highly alloyed white irons and Co-base powder metallurgy (PM) alloys commonly used in coal mining, handling and conversion processes. The studies on cast irons and Co-base alloys clearly illustrate the importance of tailoring the microstructure of an alloy to the wear application in which it is employed. The wastefulness of indiscriminate alloying is obvious, as is the danger in the use of simple tools such as macrohardness to predict wear behavior. For Ni-hard 4 cast irons, wear correlates fairly well to quasi-static tensile properties. For both Ni-4 hard irons and Co-base alloys, SEM-EDXS studies give insight as to the micro-scale flow-fracture processes governing wear.
