Microstructure and Wear-Resisting Property of Submerged-Arc Welding Fe-Cr-C Ceramic Coating Added Alloy Powder
Fe-Cr-C ceramic composite coating was fabricated on substrate of Q235 steel by submerged-arc welding process added alloy powder using the material of chromium powder, iron powder, colloid graphite powder and H08 welding wire. Microstructure and wear properties of the composite coating were investigated by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron micrograph (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDS) and microhardness tester. wearresisting property of the coating was tested at room temperature and dry sliding wear conditions. Results show that the composite coating consists of (Cr,Fe)7C3 eutectic phase and austenite. There are many dendrite crystal structure in the coating, and most of the dendrite crystal are parallel, pointing to the surface of the coating. The wear mass loss of the base body Q235 steel is 10 times higher as that of the composite coating. The coating has excellent wear-resisting property because there are many eutectic carbide (Cr,Fe)7C3. It can increase wear resisting property of the coating that the austenite could occurr strain and induced martensite in the coating during wear.
