Paper Title:
Study on the Tribological Properties of Low-Power Plasma-Sprayed Al-Cu-Cr Quasicrystalline Coating
  Abstract

Al-Cu-Cr quasicrystalline coatings were prepared by low power plasma spraying with axially-fed powder systerm. The Al65Cu20Cr15 powders were deposited on AISI 1045 steel substrate at the power ranged from 4.0 to 5.5 kW. The effects of H2/Ar flow ratio on the phase composition, microstructure and tribological properties of the as-sprayed coatings were investigated. The XRD results showed that the feedstock powders and as-sprayed coatings contained a predominant icosahedral quasicrystalline phase I-Al65Cu24Cr11 and three minor crystalline phases, including a body-centered cubic α-Al69Cu18Cr13, a monoclinic θ-Al13Cr2 (i.e. Al83Cu4Cr13) and a hexagonal ε-Al2Cu3. A qualitative analysis on the XRD patterns indicated that the volume fraction of any crystalline phase (α, ε or θ) in the coatings increased, while the quasicrystalline I-phase decreased with the rise of hydrogen (H2) content in the working gas. However, as increasing the plasma power, the friction and wear resistance of the coating were improved under the same dry sliding wear test conditions. The improvementincrease of the wear resistance may be attributed to the high hardness of quasicrystal.
