Wear properties of ADI (Austempered Ductile Iron) and CADI  (Carbidic Austempered Ductile Iron) have been tested in the following modes:
· Pin Abrasion ASTM G132-96(2001)
· Wet Sand / Rubber Wheel (WSRW) ASTM G105-02
· Dry Sand / Rubber Wheel (DSRW) ASTM G65-00
The pin abrasion test is a high stress abrasion environment while the wet sand
and dry sand rubber wheel tests simulate low stress environments.
