The Research of Thermal Arc Sprayed Coatings Tribological Properties by Using Rubber Wheel Test


Article Preview

This paper present the result obtained from new experimental STEIN-MESYFIL 953 V; STEIN-MESYFIL 954 V coatings. The surfacing material was wires of 1.6 mm diameter. The tests aimed at determining wear resistance of coatings sprayed on steel substrate. The investigation shows that the tribological behaviour of new experimental thermal arc sprayed coatings is greatly affected by its microstructural constituents such as porosity, oxide inclusions, and microhardness of coatings. Results show that increasing porosity of coatings twice, it doubles the mass loss. Results for thermal sprayed coatings of all experiments showed their high wear resistance and are discussed.
