Study on the Microstructures and Wear Resistance of ZG30 Steel Surface Layer


Article Preview

The WC and high-Cr cast iron layer were obtained on the surface of ZG30 steel by infiltration casting process, so the surface alloying of ZG30 steel was realized. The microstructures and phase structures of penetrating layer were studied by SEM, TEM, XRD, the hardness of the test material was measured by the hardness tester, and the wear resistance was tested by wear test machine. The mechanism of alloyed layer forming was analyzed. The effects of WC contents on the wear resistance of alloyed layer were studied. The results show that the layer is dense, without pores, slag and other defects, the thickness of the alloyed layer is about 6-7mm, and the penetrating layer and matrix are metallurgical bonding. The maximum hardness of the alloyed layer surface is 820Hv. When the content of WC is 15%, the penetrating layer has the highest wear resistance which is 18.8 times as high as the matrix.
