Lubricated pin-on-disk sliding wear tests were performed on applied to Al-0.1Mg-0.35Ni-Si Alloy by using the spray coating method has been investigated. Different loads were 5, 10, and 15 N at a sliding velocity, 1.32 m/s at room temperature and 60% relative humidity. The surfaces were analyzed by using X-ray diffraction the residual (XRD), energy dispersive (EDS), scanning of (SEM) and (AFM), respectively. The results have showed that the thickness of Cr2O3 coating was significantly related under the identical cold spray condition. These methods have contributed much of the understanding of quality and properties of surfaces. The (Cr2O3) coating has great potential as a wear-resistant. The hardness increased from 102 ± 5 HV to 116.4 ± 2.5 HV at coating thickness 45 µm and friction coefficient reduced from 0.29 to 0.24; and the wear rate was about 2.11X10-13 m3N-1m-1 while hardness was increased from 102 ± 5 HV to 108 ± 3.5 HV at coating thickness 15 µm. The friction reduced from 0.31 to 0.29 at same coating thickness alloys, and the wear rate was about 2.73X10-13 m3N-1m-1. The tribological properties of Cr2O3 coating have exhibited low friction and beneficial to improve the adhesion which was clear on worn surfaces of Cr2O3 coating. Crack, powder flocculation and powder formation are caused by the wear mode of the surface. Brittle fracture was found; while, adhesion and oxidation are the main mechanism of wear during the test.
