The wear behavior of SiC in SiC-steel sliding couple was investigated under various wear test conditions, such as solid state sliding - dry and wet air atmosphere - or lubricated sliding, sliding velocity and at-mosphere temperature. The effect of SiC fabrication process on the SiC wear rate was also studied under varying sliding velocities. Humidity of air plays a lubricating role in the solid state sliding, while the wear behavior is largely influenced by the sliding velocity, especially if the atmosphere is extremely dry. The fa-brication process of SiC and the surface roughness result in different wear rate depending on the magnitude of sliding velocity. High temperature is, among others, the most deteriorating factor of wear, thus being strongly wear-accelerating even under boundary lubrication.
