Effect of Sulfurizing Temperature on Formation of Coatings Produced by Nitriding-Sulfurizing Composite Treatment for Ti-6Al-4V Alloy
Three composite coatings were prepared by nitriding-sulfurizing processing of Ti-6Al-4V alloy at different sulfurizing temperatures. The microstructure and phase structure of the coatings were examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD), respectively. Furthermore, the hardness of the coatings was measured. The effect of the sulfurizing temperature on microstructure of coatings was investigated. The results indicated that the composite coating was mainly comprised of titanium nitrides, titanium sulfides, and titanium. It was found that the phase composition of composite coating changed with the variation of the sulfurizing temperature.
