Tribological properties of Al-brass pipes of various producers were studied in different environments. The tested brasses have very similar chemical composition, but they differ in microstructure due to mainly by heat treatment after cold drawing. Microstructure as well as roughness of surface influence chemical and mechanical properties which are important in operating conditions. The experiments of tribological behavior were made in various environments, dry air, cooling treated water and 3.5 % solution of NaCl at room temperature 21 ± 2°C. The tribological tests were carried out on the Linear Tribometer at normal loading 5 N by the method ball on plate for the duration of 5500 s. The measured friction coefficients were evaluated by the program DIAdem and the diagrams were created from signal generated by software NSignal Express
