In heavily-loaded, unlubricated, sliding applications Hadfield's manganese steel develops smooth polished interface surfaces, eliminating galling and resultant high frictional resistance; wear is minimized; wear on the mating steel is minimized; a high surface hardness is developed while retaining a tough elastic substructure; and it has a low rate of crack growth. On account of these properties it has many applications in railroad car components.
