Investigations of wear in sliding friction of WC-Hadfield steel hard alloy against cast tool steel have been carried out in a broad range of velocities and pressure values. Structural and phase composition variations have been revealed. Friction-affected zone was found to be 450 μm in depth. Structural γ→ α, γ→ epsi; transformation regions are located within 100 μm of the surface. These transformations contributed to the total solid solution deformation hardening.
