Abstract : Optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and electron probe microanalyser techniques was used to study the pickup of abrasive particles in annealed aluminium during abrasion on silicon carbide abrasive papers. Neither optical nor scanning electron microscopy adequately characterises the surface with respect to grit pickup. However, the electron probe microanalyser can be used to give semiquantitative assessment of abrasive pickup, despite its limitations when examining rough surfaces. The present results show that the pickup of silicon carbide particles increases with increase in track length, increase in applied load and decrease in grit size; it is also markedly influenced by lubrication.
