Abstract

In this study, one ternary zinc-aluminium-copper and eight quaternary zinc-aluminium-copper-silicon alloys were produced by permanent mould casting. The friction and wear properties of the alloys were investigated using a block-on-disc machine. The results obtained from these investigations were explained in terms of microstructure and mechanical properties of the alloys and compared with those obtained from SAE 660 bronze under the same test conditions.
