Abstract: A WC-Co coating with self-lubricating property was deposited by detonation gun (D-gun) process, using a WC-Co powder doped with a MoS2-Ni powder, under a proper spray condition. It is proved that the MoS2 composition was kept in the resulting coating by SEM, XRD and EPMA. Evaluation on sliding wear property indicates that the MoS2 composition plays an important role in lowering both coefficient of friction and wear rate for the resulting coating, which is confirmed by observations on wear track. It suggests that the deposition of WC-Co coating with self-lubricating property by D-gun spray is feasible by controlling lubricant powder and spray conditions, which can exhibit higher sliding wear resistance.

Abstract: A failure case of the outside coating on the furnace roller is presented in this study. The coating consists of WC-Co, which is deposited on 45 steel by High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) spraying. The spalling of coatings has been found in the middle of the roller. Rust was also observed on the coatings of the roller. The failure analysis of the coating was performed in terms of composition analysis, and microstructure observation etc. In addition, the effects of different sandblasting post-treatments were compared. And the effect of substrate material is investigated on the corrosion of coatings. It was concluded that the sandblasting particles remained on the substrate surface have effects on the failure of the coating. The peeling-off coating on the roller is also related with the formation of iron oxides. Less sand can be remained on the substrate surface when air purging and brushing is used after the sand-blasting compared with air purging or non-treatment is applied. The stainless steel shows more excellent corrosion resistance than the low carbon steel when they are used as substrate for WC-Co coatings.

Abstract: Nanostructured and conventional WC-Co coatings were deposited on 1Cr18Ni9Ti stainless steel substrate using an atmospheric plasma spraying facility. The friction and wear behavior of the resulting cermet composite coatings in water environment was comparatively investigated. It was found that the nanostructured and conventional WC-Co coatings had similar friction coefficients under the same testing conditions. However, the nanostructured WC-Co coating had better wear resistance than the conventional WC-Co coating as slid against both Si3N4 ball and stainless steel ball. At the same time, the stainless steel or Si3N4 counterpart matched with the nanostructured WC-Co coating had a much smaller wear rate as well, and as compared to rubbing against the ceramic ball counterpart, the two types of coatings rubbing against the stainless steel ball registered lower friction coefficients and wear rates.

Abstract: Superfine coatings have been prepared by Electro-spark deposition (ESD) on die steel substrate with WC-8Co electrode. The microstructures and abrasion performance of the coating were investigated by X-ray diffractometer (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and microhardness tester. The results show that ultra-fine particles prevail in the coating. The primary phases of the coating contain Fe3W3C, Co3W3C, Fe7W6 and W2C. The maximum microhardness reaches 1432.5 HV0.3. The results of abrasive test demonstrated that the coating had an excellent sliding wear resistance because the superfine particles distributed dispersedly in the coating increased the resistance to micro-cutting and plowing during the wear test, which effectively improves the surface performance of die steel substrate.

Abstract: Micro-nanostructure coatings have been attempted to prepare by Electro-spark deposition (ESD) on cast iron substrate. The microstructures and properties of the coating were investigated by X-ray diffractometer (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and microhardness tester. The results show that micro-nanosized particles and fine equiaxed structures prevail in the coating. The primary phases of the coating contain Fe3W3C, Co3W3C, Fe7W6 and W2C. Its average microhardness reaches 1290.1 HV. The results of abrasive test demonstrated that the coating had an excellent sliding wear resistance because the superfine particles distributed dispersedly in the coating increased the resistance to micro-cutting and plowing during the wear test, which effectively improves the surface performance of cast iron substrate.

Abstract: This paper presented a new technique, which was the online wear evaluation of wheel in grinding WC-Co coating by using wavelet packet decomposition. Based on the measurement method, theory of online wear evaluation of wheel was introduced. The selection principle of characteristic signals was brought up, and the grinding acceleration signal was the best choice among many characteristic signals. The time domain signal analysis method of wavelet packet decomposition was analyzed. Lastly, experiments on the wear of wheel were performed, and experimental results showed the validity of the method.

Abstract: Ceramic coating materials own some advantages, for example high-rigidity, good abradability and good performance under high temperature. At the same time, ceramic coating materials are also difficult-to-machine materials. High machining precision and efficiency can be obtained in grinding WC-Co coating by cup wheel. The affection of grinding temperature is very important for grinding processing. But there is no research on grinding temperature of WC-Co coating by cup wheel. So in this paper, grinding temperature by cup wheel is researched on theory, the new concept, which is effectiveness width of arc moving heat source, is presented, and theoretical formula of grinding temperature is also built. Then experimental research on grinding temperature of WC-Co coating by cup wheel is done by use of thermocouple temperature measurement technology. The experimental results show the validity and effectivity of the theoretical formula. The affection of grinding parameters to grinding temperature is researched also.

Abstract: Thermal sprayed WC-based coatings are widely used in modern industry, especially in excellent wear-resistant-demanding fields, due to their high hardness and superior mechanical properties. WC-Co is a typical representative of the coatings, usually used as the protective layers of shaft, pump sleeve intine, etc. WC-Co coatings were prepared on low carbon steel substrate using high velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) technology, under different distance ranging from 160 to 240 mm. The influence of the spraying distance on coating hardness was investigated and discussed. The results reveal that, the cross-sectional hardness of the HVOF WC-Co coatings depend not only on the spraying distance, but also on the indentation position. The average microhardness for all the coatings was obviously enhanced. The highest one (1793.6 Hv) was produced with a distance of 240 mm. Due to the heat effect of the flame, the hardness for all coatings varies with the distance from indentation to coating/substrate interface.

Abstract: Interest in nanomaterials has increased in recent years. This is due to the potential of size reduction to nanometric scale to provide properties of materials such as hardness, toughness, wear, and corrosion resistance. The current study is focused on WC-Co cermet coats, materials that are extensively used in applications requiring wear resistance. In this work, WC-17Co powder was thermally sprayed onto mild steel using High Velocity Oxy Fuel (HVOF) spray technique. The nanostructured specimen was produced from sprayed sample by heat-treating at 1100°C in a vacuum chamber. Their structures were studied by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) tests were performed on the both types of coated samples in 3.5% NaCl solution. The amorphous phase in WC-17Co coating was transformed to crystalline phases by heat treatment at high temperatures. The heat treatment of these coatings at high temperature also resulted in partially dissolution of WC particles and formation of new crystalline phases. Generation of these phases produced the nanostructured coating with better mechanical properties. Comparative electro chemical test results showed that, the heat treatment could improve corrosion resistance of the nanostructured WC-17Co coat than the as sprayed coats.
