The friction and wear of two near-eutectoid and two monotectoid permanent-moulded zinc-based alloys and an SAE 660 bronze for comparison were investigated under dry sliding conditions. To determine the wear mechanisms surface and subsurface microstructures of worn test samples were examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
