The wear behaviour of plasma nitrided and white layer removed from AISI H13 and 722M24 steels were investigated at elevated temperatures. The samples prepared from the test materials plasma nitrided at 530-590 degrees C for 4-100 h were tested at temperatures of 50-200 degrees C under lubricated abrasive conditions. The wear behaviours of the samples are completely different in the test conditions from those observed at room temperature and dry conditions.
