Effects of Residual Stress on Interfacial Bonding Strength of WC Coating
The residual stresses of WC coating prepared by flame spraying and laser re-melting were measured quantitatively with X-ray diffraction (XRD) stress tester, and its micro-structures were observed with SEM, and the effects of residual stress on bonding strength of coating interface were analyzed. The experimental results are shown that residual stresses of WC coating are all tensile, and the effects of coating thickness on its residual stress is obvious, and residual stress is verse ratio with its thickness; Coating stress influences its cracking, tensile stress speeds its cracking, which causes its bonding strength decrease; The stress state is improved by decreasing its thickness, and its bonding strength can be increased.
