Study on Surface Cermets Reinforced by VC Particles Produced in Situ
A new fabrication method for VC-Fe surface cermets by cast-sintering has been developed in the study. SEM and XRD were used to examine the variation of structure of surface composites after casting and solidifying. It was confirmed that the VC particles reinforced surface composites can be in situ produced on the casting surface by the cast-sintering technology. The mechanism of quickly finishing V carbonized reacts and sinter compacting in block during casting was analyzed. The wear-resistance of VC particles reinforced surface composites was examined on a MM-200 wear-test machine.
