Microstructures of Spray Formed Superalloy GH742


Article Preview

Microstructures and hot deformation behaviors of spray formed superalloy GH742 have been studied in this paper. The results indicate that the spray formed superalloy GH742 has high relative density, low oxygen pickup, refined microstructure, and good forgeability. The fully inhibited coarsening of microstructure in spray formed superalloy GH742 has also been found in this study. 32wt% γ¢ and 0.5wt% carbonitrides, (Nb,Ti)(C,N) and Ti(C,N) were found in the as-deposited GH742, and most of them are sub-micrometer.
