In this paper, wear and friction behaviour of high-speed steel (HSS) and indefinite chill (IC) material for rolling a ferritic stainless steel were investigated on a tribometer. A disk specimen of the ferritic stainless steel-B445J1M was pre-oxidised at 1100 °C for 30 min, and then rotated against a pin at 500 °C for 30 min. The pin was made of HSS or IC material. It was found that the friction coefficient of the IC was lower than that of the HSS, but the mass loss of the HSS pin was less than that of the IC pin. The oxide scale of the disk was more easily worn out and attached on the HSS pin than that of the IC pin.
