Materials used in wear-resistant applications are exposed to heavy loads and different environmental circumstances which generate mechanical wear and corrosion. By choosing the most suitable materials for the correct applications, you can affect the lifetime of the machine and create substantial cost savings. This thesis displays wear-resistant steels but also other wear-resistant materials, including irons, ceramics and polymers. Use of the materials is divided by the application. For dry applications with mechanical wear carbon steels are the optimal choice and for corrosion and tribo-chemical wear stainless steel is the correct material.
