Characterization of the Diffusion Zone Developed in a Bimetallic Steel-Bronze at Interface
The paper presents the results of theoretical and experimental research regarding the establishing of some chemical positions of the bearing alloy and of cladding technology. The final properties of the materials depend on the kinetics and thermodynamics of the interface processes. In the paper the diffusion zone developed between the two bimetal materials is revealed and characterized under the aspect of chemical composition and structure. An application for this research that could lead to increasing the endurance of the steel products cladded through welding is the case of boring bits with three cones, which work under short oiling conditions and variations of the contact pressure.
