Abstract


The influence of titanium diboride additives on microstructure and wear-resistance of NiCrBSi thermally sprayed coatings deposited on a steel substrate has been studied. NiCrBSi-based composite powders with 10, 20, 40 wt.% TiB2 particles content were produced. The structure of NiCrSiB-TiB2 coatings consists of TiB2 and CrB grains distributed in Ni-based matrix. The wear-resistance of NiCrSiB-TiB2 plasma sprayed coatings in dry sliding conditions against the same coating using pin-on-disk tester. It was determined that the amount of titanium diboride particles in  NiCrBSi-based coatings influences essentially on the wear  resistance and wear mechanism. The NiCrBSi-based plasma sprayed coatings containing 20 wt. % of TiB2 possess the highest wear resistance due to the realization of mechano-oxidational wear mechanism.
