Optimization of constitutive friction materials of braking devices for high speed trains is endlessly on delicate increase by reason of the large energy levels to dissipate, and the lightening more and more required by generations to come. Low thermal diffusivity materials such as coated steel discs in one of the research themes in this field. Proposed study is relative to tribological characterization of the wear behavior of stellite coatings, based on cobalt or nickel alloys against aluminum titanate pad. This one has ever been tested and prooved good behavior against cermet coated steel discs. Stellite coating performances are evaluated in term of friction coefficient, contact temperature and wear in comparison with this type of disc.
