Pin-on-disc tribotests with the addition of Cu particles as an interfacial media: characterization of disc tribosurfaces using SEM-FIB techniques

Abstract:

The present paper focuses on the effect of Cu addition(400 μm, 20 μm and50nm)on the microstructure and topography of discs after pin-on-discs tribotests (steel/steel). These results were compared with the condition without any particulate addition. SEM, FIB, EDS and XEDS techniques were used to characterize the discs’ tribosurfaces. X-ray mapping characterization showed O associated with Fe adhered to the tribosurfaces for all conditions. Additionally, expressive adhesion of Cu particles on the disc tribosurface was detected via FIB combined with XEDS mapping for the 20 μm and50 nm conditions. The formation of a compact iron oxide layer on the discs´ tribosurface was only observed for the 400 μm Cu condition and without any Cu addition.
