Wear Resistance of Al2O3, Al2O3-40wt.%TiO2 Coatings Prepared by Plasma Spraying on H13 Hot-Worked Die Steel


Article Preview

Al2O3 and Al2O3-40wt.%TiO2 ceramic coatings on H13 hot-worked die steel have been prepared by plasma spraying, and then the microstructure, micro-hardness as well as wear resistance of the prepared coatings have been investigated by means of x-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), Vickers hardness tester and ball-on-disk high temperature tribometer. The results showed that the plasma sprayed ceramic coatings are of higher hardness and wear resistance than H13 hot-worked die steel.
