This article describes the elemental composition of secondary structures formed on the steel contact surface during wear test against experimental Al alloys. Wear tests were carried out according to the rotating steel roller-fixed shoe of an antifriction alloy scheme under boundary lubrication conditions. The duration of the test was 40 h, and motor oil M14V2 was used as a lubricant. The microstructure and elemental characterization of the steel surface before and after the tribological test was obtained by scanning electron microscopy equipped with EDX. The simultaneous presence of various constituents of oil, steel, and Al alloys can produce both positive and negative effects on the friction characteristic of the tribosystem. It was shown that presence of Mo, F, S, Si, Ni, and Cr have a favorable effect on the wear resistance of steel and the friction coefficient of the rubbing surfaces due to the formation of secondary structures with optimal composition.
