    This paper presents a technical definition of adhesive wear, comparing adhesive wear to abrasive, erosive, corrosive, fretting, and other forms of wear. The effects of various material factors and test parameters on adhesive wear are described. How to select materials and test conditions to produce the maximum adhesive wear are outlined. Test repeatability and accuracy are included.
