Effect of Pb and Sn Adding on Dry Sliding Wear Behavior of á-Brass (70/30)


This work is concerned with a study of dry sliding wear of α–Brass (70/30) withaddition of lead and tin(3%wt) for each one alloy. Three brass alloys were prepared bymelting and pouring in steel molds. A Pin -on-Disc technique was used. The effect ofapplied loads and sliding times on wear rate were examined. The results show that thewear rate increases with increasing applied loads and with increasing sliding time atconstant sliding speed (2.7m/s) while hardness of steel disc was 35 HRc .The results also show that the brass alloy containing 3% tin has morewear resistance than that of other brass alloys.
