Are there any free online databases where I can access data for the wear rates of materials? I tried using CES EduPack, but I'm having no luck.

Maybe other free and open databases are also existing on the net? Where and how could I find the wear rate in them?

Maybe you should check out tribology. There is such thing as specific wear rate, k, for example, which is given for a pair of materials in dynamic contact. Say steel over steel has very low coefficient, even better than PTFE over steel, for example.
