Wear Behavior of Fe-Based Coating Fabricated by Plasma Thermal Spraying
The Fe-based amorphous coatings were prepared by Air plasma thermal spraying. X-ray diffraction results show that the coating fabricated at current of 300A has an amorphous structure. The amorphous nanocrystalline composite coatings were obtained at current more than 300A. The friction and wear properties of the coatings were investigated in Ml-10 friction and wear tester at dry friction condition. The results show that the amorphous content is the main influencing factors to wear resistance of coating. The density of coating is another reason to affect the wear resistance of amorphous nanocrystalline composite coating.
