In this study, the effects of ageing parameters were investigated on wear behaviours and electrical conductivity of Cu-Co-Be alloy. The samples were quenched at room temperature after solution heat treated for 1 h. Then, ageing processes were applied for three different temperatures (470 degrees C, 500 degrees C, 530 degrees C) and for three different ageing times (1, 2, 3 h). Microstructure examining, electrical conductivity and hardness measurements were carried out after ageing process. On the samples, which obtained the highest hardness values from hardness test (470 degrees C), there were carried out wear tests with 1 m s(-1) sliding speed under 30 N at four sliding distance (500-2000 m). Results clearly show that the highest hardness values were measured for samples aged at 470 degrees C for 3 h and hardness values were decreased with increasing ageing temperature. The lowest weight loss values were evaluated for samples aged at 470 degrees C for 3 h. The highest electrical conductivity values were measured at 500 degrees C for 1 h aged samples.
