oating is one of the innovative approaches used to improve the wear resistance and load-carrying capacity of surfaces in rolling-sliding contact, such as gears and rolling element bearings. In this study, the tribological performance of standard gear material (16MnCr5) and two kinds of powder metallurgy (PM) gear material (Distaloy AQ + 0.2% C and Astoloy 85Mo +0.2% C) with and without tribofilms formed by a pre-treatment were evaluated. Specimens treated with the pre-treatment and the substrate is subjected to pin-on-disc tests under boundary lubrication conditions. The friction and wear performance of the two different PM gear materials with the pre-treatment formed tribo-film were compared to RS-RS (16MnCr5 material disc and pin combination) for reference. It was found that the pre-treatment lowers the friction coefficient and enhances the wear resistance of pins because of the tribo-film formed. The tribo-film caused good running-in due to the existing of and Fe and W oxides. Mo-Mo (Astoloy 85Mo + 0.2% C material disc and pin combination) and Mo-RS (Astoloy 85Mo + 0.2% C disc and 16MnCr5 pin combination) showed statistically significant higher wear resistance.
