Abstract : The study concerns U1, U3, U4, U7, U12, U20, U30 alloys heat treated and surfaced on ST.3 steel. The resistance of FE-C alloys to abrasive wear is determined by the initial value of ferrite blocks, the hardness and C content being equal. The lower the initial value of ferrite blocks, the higher the wear resistance. The surface friction of carbon alloys causes the size reduction of ferrite blocks which is particularly intensive in the initial period of the process over a friction path of 1-2 M. (Author)
