Effects of the Microstructure and Mechanical Properties for Wear Resistant Casting Surface with Vacuum Evaporable Pattern Casting Infiltration Process
Wear-resistant casting was made by V-EPC infiltration process. The matrix material was high boron steel casting. Surface composite materials layer was ceramic particles, such as WC, Ferrochromium, and Borax, etc. High boron molten metal was infiltrated into the composite layer and a good cast-infiltration layer may be formed by the interaction of vacuum and high temperature. The wear-resistant casting made with this process has high strength, hardness, and good wear-resistance. It is a new process that wear-resistant casting will be made of.
