The three body abrasive is been found common in most of the processing industrial applications. The major attention is paid in order to enhance the life of the material which experiences the abrasive nature of wear. The present work concentrates on improving the life of an alloy steel IS 2026 material which is used in most of the machinery elements of industries. The coating is one of the proven technology to improve the life of the material and enhance the functional properties. The composite coating is carried out by plasma spray technique. Ni-Cr is used as the major coating material with reinforced nano B4C particles. Further work is carried out to optimize the three body abrasive wear parameters on the coated material. The load, sliding velocity and sliding distance are considered as the three parameters. The experimental design is carried out in five levels by central composite design method (20 trials). The results shows that that load applied has the significant influence on the abrasive wear contributing 40.25% followed by sliding velocity and interaction effect of sliding velocity and distance of 17%. The least influencing factor is found to be interaction effect of load and sliding distance of 1.2%
