Friction wear characteristics of commercial aluminum alloys, 2090-T8, 2091-T8, 3003-O, 5052-O, 6061-T6 and AC4CH-T6, versus alumina balls were evaluated using a pin-on disk type friction wear testing system in air, distilled water and 3% NaCl solution at 298 K. The weight loss of 2091-T8 aluminum alloy, that is, Al-Li-Cu-Mg alloy, is the greatest in air and distilled water while that of AC4CH-T6 aluminum alloy is the smallest. The weight loss of 6061-T6 aluminum alloy is the greatest in 3% NaCl solution while that of AC4CH-T6 aluminum alloy is the least. The effect of environments is different between Li contained aluminum alloys and non-Li contained aluminum alloys. The trends in the width of friction wear groove of each aluminum alloy shows the same trend observed in the weight loss of each aluminum alloy.
