Paper Title:
Microstructure and Wear Properties of Fe-Cr-C and Fe-Cr-Si-C Clads on Carbon Steel by TIG Surfacing Process
  Abstract

In the present study, the surface of St52 steel was alloyed with preplaced powders Fe-Cr-C and Fe-Cr-Si-C by using a tungsten-inert gas (TIG) heat source. Then microstructure of the alloyed surfaces was investigated. Following the surface alloying, conventional characterization techniques, such as optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction were employed to study the microstructure of the alloyed surface. Microhardness measurements were performed across the alloyed zone. The tribological behavior of the coatings was compared in room temperature dry sliding wear tests. It was found that the as-deposited coatings consisted of higher volume fraction of carbides (Cr7C3). No crack formation was found on the coatings. As a result, TIG arc heat source can be used effectively for performing surface alloying on St52 steel with a preplaced powder in order to improve its surface wear resistance.
