Hi everyone, I have no detailed kno

Hi everyone, I have no detailed kno

Hi everyone, I have no detailed knowledge about material properties. I want to know which material is better for wear resistance property C - 42 or D2 after Heat treatment and which is better. Please give some details of these materials.

Please ignore any mistakes to make this post because I make it the very first time.

RE: Hi everyone, I have no detailed kno

A loaded question, and the true answer is really dependent on wear conditions your part will see. Looking at the most gross level, you should ask yourself the basic question: which material is harder? You'll have to do the legwork to come up with the answer to that question.

RE: Hi everyone, I have no detailed kno

It depends on the wear mechanism. Is it abrasion, fretting, what about temperature and lubrication, is there any corrosion, and so on.
