Paper Title:
Influence of Re-Melting Technology on Properties and Microstructures of Ferrous Matrix Composites Reinforced with Tungsten Carbide Particle
  Abstract

The scrap WCP/Fe-C composites were re-melted in a 50 kg medium frequency induction furnace. A regenerated composites ring was manufactured by centrifugal casting process. The microstructure and properties of the composites before and after re-melting were investigated by SEM with energy dispersive spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. The results showed that the microstructure of the composites after re-melting was composed of un-dissolved WCP, bainite, bone-like crystallites and graphite. The un-dissolved WCP were uniformly distributed in the outer region of the regenerated composites ring, their volume fraction attained to about 65 vol. %, and size of the un-dissolved WCP was obviously smaller than that of the WCP before re-melting. The impact toughness of the regenerated composites was below those of the composites before re-melting, the hardness and wear resistance of the regenerated composites were almost same as those of the composites before re-melting under the same test conditions.
