Abstract: 

The wear behaviour of Al-12Si alloy and Al-12Si-Sn/ZrSiO4 composite prepared by spray forming technique has been investigated under dry sliding conditions at different loads and temperatures. The wear rate of spray formed composite was significantly lower than that of as cast Al-12Si alloy. Paricle size of ZrSiO4 was varied from 53 to 105 µm and the amount of Sn was taken 5 and 10 %. Smaller particles of ZrSiO4 were able to reduce the wear rate up to more extent as compared to that of bigger particles in the same matrix. On increasing the amount of Sn the wear rate decreases.
