Electroless nickels have been used in practical applications as versatile materials for anti-wear. The wear resistance is well-improved as a composite coating by incorporating particles. Composite platting offers various mechanical and electoronic functions, depending on the combination of a material matrix and particles deposited. Among them Ni-P plating reinforced with SiC particles have been growing in importance owing to its high hardness and better anti-wear properties. In this study, a Ni-P-SiC/Ni-P-SiC system was evaluated using a ball-on-plate type reciprocating tester, and the results were compared with that of SiC/SiC system at room temperature. As the results, the Ni-P-SiC/Ni-P-SiC system with the surfaces where SiC particles were appeared in clumps had the low frictional coefficient around 0.1 even in water.
