Copper specimens whose temperature was varied from room temperature to 500°C were eroded by sand particles. The amount of metal removed increased monotonically over this temperature range except for temperatures between 350 and 425°C. Within this temperature band the erosive action prevented spalling, and thus had a beneficial effect in reducing the overall material removal rate.
