The tribological properties of austenitic stainless steel (JIS SUS316L) were studied in pressurized hydrogen, i.e. 0.3, 10 and 40 MPa. The coefficient of friction was small under all the conditions tested in this study by comparison with data obtained previously at the standard hydrogen pressure (0.1MPa). The specific wear rates decreased with an increase in the atmospheric hydrogen pressure.
