Abstract

One binary zinc-aluminium monotectoid and five ternary zinc-aluminium-copper alloys were produced by permanent mould casting. Their wear properties were examined using a block-on-ring test machine. Hardness, tensile strength and percentage elongation of the alloys were also determined and microhardness of aluminium-rich alpha phase was measured.
