The data shared here are mainly about the evolution of real contact area and surface separation. The contact behaviors of three contact pairs were observed by employing the X-ray computed tomography technology. The detailed data of he real contact area versus contact pressure curves are shared in the Supplementary Material. The surface separation of contact pair 1-3 under each contact pressure are also presented in the Supplementary Material. These surface separation data are 201 × 201 height matrixes, representing the 2 mm × 2 mm square regions extracted from the centers of each contact pairs.
