The dominant wear mechanism is transformed from the adhesive wear of pure CE to abrasive wear of the filling composites.
Occasionally there can be two simultaneous causes--such as wedging and alignment or abrasive wear that masks the other two--but that is pretty rare and does not negate this analysis.
The samples from the cast were cut and specimens were prepared for the abrasive wear test.
After analyzing four types of abrasive wear methods cited in the literature (Ahmadian et al., 2005; Itoi et al., 2010; Malafaia et al., 2010; Gant & Gee, 2011; Fernandes et al., 2012; Cozza et al., 2015; Farfan-Cabrera et al., 2016), it was verified that the method of rotary ball on plate, or micro-abrasion by rotary ball, provides favorable conditions for the abrasiveness analysis of sediments in metallic alloy samples.
