The article presents the results of abrasion tests for different types of silicon cast iron. Scope of research included silicon cast iron with a silicon content in the range of 15 – 25 %. Wear resistance studies were based on gravimetric method, where the sample was moving reciprocally in metal – mineral friction system. As a material for countersample silicon carbide was used. Obtained results allowed to determine the wear resistance of alloy cast iron and the relation between silicon content and wear resistanc in the alloy for selected work conditions.Keywords: Wear resistance, silicon cast iron
