Wear is defined as mechanical or physical damage to a contact surface by another as a result of a relative movement. The structure of the steels has a great influence on abrasion resistance, so that certain thermo-chemical treatments applied to steels, besides the structural changes, are also aimed at changes in the chemical composition in the superficial layers as a result of diffusion with certain elements. A highly used thermo-chemical treatment is the aluminization, especially as a process for increasing the wear resistance, of the hot oxidation resistance, in order to replace the expensive refractory alloys with heating resistance up to 800-1000 °C with cheaper materials.
