In this work, four ingots of Zn-40Al-2Cu-2Si alloy were produced by permanent mould casting. Two of the ingots were subjected to quench-ageing treatment. After examining the microstructure and some mechanical properties of the alloy in both as-east and heat treated conditions, its friction and wear behaviour were investigated over a range of pressure and sliding speed using a conforming blockon-ring type machine without oil supply which corresponds to "oil cut off".
