Tests were carried out to study the effects of metal pairs, surface coatings and lubricants on the fretting wear of stainless steel under severe conditions. The results obtained were as follows. (1) Metal pairs good for fretting prevention were SUS 304 stainless steel-copper and SUS 304 stainless steel-silver. (2) The bonded solid film lubricants were effective for the initial period of the test but they were inadequate for long endurance. (3) A high viscosity oil did not protect the surface against fretting wear because of inadequate feeding. (4) A new solid lubricant SnI2for stainless steel was found. (5) Combinations of certain of these treatments resulted in very low wear rates which would be satisfactory in practical applications. © 1981.
