Paper Title:
TiC/Ti Composite Layers Fabricated by Laser Surface Alloying
  Abstract

Laser surface alloying is an attractive processing to improve surface hardness, wear and corrosion resistance. In this paper, a continuous wave CO2 laser was used to irradiate commercially pure titanium surface with pre-placed active carbon powders in argon atmosphere. A compact, well-adherent, and crack-free TiC/Ti composite layer was obtained. The microstructure and phase constitution of the alloyed layers were determined and analyzed, and the micro-hardness was measured. The result of X ray diffraction (XRD) analysis shows that the alloyed layers contain TiC and Ti (martensite). The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) observation shows TiC growth morphologies have a well-developed dendrite, cellular dendrite, globular microstructure and cross-petal microstructure. The mechanism of the formation of titanium carbides is discussed. Micro-hardness of the laser surface alloyed layer was improved to 420 Hv as compared to 200 Hv of the as-received commercially pure titanium.
