Article Preview

In this work, WC-17Co powder was thermally sprayed onto mild steel using HVOF spray technique. The coated specimen was heat treated at 1100°C in a vacuum chamber and was then studied by using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Post heat treatment resulted in recrystallization of the amorphous phase, formed during thermal spraying, into low carbon eta phase like Co6W6C. TEM results of the heat treated specimens showed that these new nucleated eta phases had very clear crystallographic structure without any crystalline defects. Heat treatment could also transform high carbon carbides like WC and W2C in the as sprayed samples to high carbon eta phases like Co3W3C. High density of dislocations and staking faults noticed in TEM of these phases might be an indication of possible shear mechanism in formation of these carbides.
