The microstructure effect on dry friction and wear of steel En 31 was evaluated by SEM, Rockwell C hardness, and dry sliding tests, using various heat treatments (full annealing, normalizing, water quenching, and spheroidizing). Full annealing resulted in max. wear loss whereas the martensitic structure had high wear resistance. A structure consisting of martensite, carbide, and retained austenite had the highest wear resistance. The dry wear in air was controlled by both oxidn. and wear mechanisms.
