The tribological properties of Nickel-based composites containing Ti3SiC2 and Ag2W2O7 fabricated by spark plasma sintering against Si3N4 balls were investigated using a ball-on-disk tribometer from room temperature to 600 °C. The tribolayers formed on the friction surface and their effects on the tribological properties of composites at different temperatures were discussed based on the worn surface characterization. The results show that Ag2W2O7 is decomposed into metallic silver and CrWO4 during the high-temperature fabrication process. The composite with the addition of 20 wt% Ti3SiC2 and 5 wt% Ag2W2O7 exhibits a friction coefficient of 0.33–0.49 and a wear rate of 7.07×10−5–9.89×10−5 mm3/(Nm) over a wide temperature range from room temperature to 600 °C. The excellent tribological properties at a wide temperature range are attributed to the formation of a glaze layer at low temperature and a tribooxide layer at high temperature, which can provide a low shearing strength for the synergistic effects of Ag and tribooxides.
