Synthesis and Characterization of NiCoFeCrAl3 High Entropy Alloy Coating by Laser Cladding
The NiCoFeCrAl3 high entropy alloy coating with a little addition of C, Si, Mn, Mo has been succesively synthesized by laser cladding. The results show that simple solution phases of ordered BCC and a small fraction of FCC are obtained with fine equaixed dendrites morphology. Because the fine grain strengthening obtained by rapid solidification and the additived small atomic elements like C, Si further increase the distortion of the solid solution lattice, The microhardness of the coating reached above 800 HV and is 50 % higher than previous study on the similar composition by arc melting technique.
