Tubular Composite Material for Hardfacing Layers with Protection Appliance against Abrasive Wears
Thermal spraying technologies are an effective way to ensure surface protection against destructive effects of wear, corrosion and oxidizing phenomena which can be applied in majority industrial sectors for improving properties of new parts or for reconditioning worn out parts technology. The powders used in this study are mainly used in the repair of cast iron parts (e.g. engine blocks) and in build - up of press tools for car bodies, threads, turbine-guided vanes, rotating valves and shafts in eccentric presses. Three types of tubular composites based on WC powders were studied which demonstrated that this technology improved their properties.
