Laser surface treatments provide interesting solutions to the problem of accelerated wear of materials. Some results are presented for chromium carbide-rich surface alloys after laser-beam solid-state treatment of an Ni70Cr30 carbon-precoated substrate. The wear results are satisfactory with respect to pure Ni70Cr30 substrate, but are below those obtained by superficial melting of a graphitized Ni70Cr30 substrate.
