Scuffing Resistance of Surface Treated 8625 Alloy Steels 2011-01-0034

Scuffing is a common source of failure for many mechanical components in automobiles. 8625 alloy steel is commonly used in camshafts, gears, piston pins, shafts, and splines. The purpose of the research is to study the scuffing resistance of non-treated, carburized, nitrocarburized, and carbonitrided 8625 alloy steels. The scuffing resistance of the 8625 alloy steels was determined through pin-on-disk tests. The hardness and microstructure of the disks were analyzed using electron microscopy to determine wear mechanisms for each surface treated steel. The wear mechanisms were then related to the scuff resistance of the various materials.
