In this study, the effect of impact angle of the particles on solid particle erosive wear properties of basalt base glass-ceramics used for industrial applications was investigated. Commercial basalt glass-ceramic materials size of 20×20×3 cm was sectioned to the size of 5×5×1.2 cm. The experimental procedure was performed by using erosive wear test device with nozzle diameter of 0.78 cm. Na feldspar size of 300 μm was used as erosive media. The samples were fixed 2 cm distance from the nozzle, Na feldspar particles were sprayed by using 1.5, 3, 4 bar pressure for 20 s. The tests were repeated with 30°+45°+60°+75°+90° impact angles. The erosive wear rates were measured and the effect of particle impact angle on wear properties was determined.
