Water-lubricated sliding tests have been carried out in a pin-on-disc machine with alumina pins sliding against steel disc, over a range of speeds from 0.1 to 12.0 $m s^{-1}$. The wear and friction results and analysis of surface and debris indicate the possibility of hydroxide formation in low speed ranges. However, for speeds beyond 4.0 $m s^{-1}$, the water lubrication results in very high wear while friction is comparable with that under dry conditions.
