Are you experiencing corrosive wear? What steps have you taken to prevent it? Considering parts are subjected to a combination of the effects of both corrosion and wear—corrosive wear is one of the most harmful forms of wear. The effects are commonly more severe than either wear or corrosion occurring on their own. Alloy corrosion resistance can be achieved through desired microstructural design, reducing the temperature, speed, and load, or utilizing surface coatings such as phosphate. Changing out materials to more compatible ones or enhancing oil cooling are also efficient means of wear resistance.
