Wear and sliding friction properties of a number of nickel alloys operating against hardened SAE 52100 steel were studied. These alloys include L nickel, wrought monel, cast monel, cast modified H monel, cast S monel, Invar, Hi-Resist 3, and Nichrome V. Some of the alloys studied may be useful as possible cage materials for high-temperature, high-speed bearings for aircraft turbines or for bearing to operate in corrosive media.
