Combustion Synthesis of TiC-Fe Coating on Surface of a Plane Iron
The dense TiC-Fe coating was fabricated by combustion synthesis on surface of a plane iron, and the phase composition of the TiC-Fe coating was determined by X-ray diffraction. The predominant TiC and a small quantity of α-Fe phases without others phases in an XRD spectrum were observed, indicating that chemical reaction was complete. The microstructure of TiC-Fe coating on surface of a plane iron is characterized by the grey TiC particles and white Fe phase, and the grey TiC particles appeared to be uniformly dispersed in the white Fe matrix. The increase in hardness and bond strength is due to the formation of the TiC phase.
