Galling is a type of wear caused by a combination of friction and
adhesion between sliding surfaces typically under compressive
loading. The wear is a result of tearing and slipping of the
crystal structure at the surface. When material begins to tear it
may become stuck or welded to the mating surface. In general
the harder the material, the more galling resistant the material
behaves. Many stainless steel metal-on-metal applications in
food manufacturing and production, industrial fluid handling,
fastener, and medical device industry require outstanding
corrosion resistance coupled with non-galling behavior.
Bodycote’s S³P treatments can provide a solution for these
systems resulting in superior performance.
