TiC-based hardmetal coatings containing 25 or 40 vol% Ni-20 wt%Cr matrix (hereafter TiC–25NiCr and TiC–40NiCr) were obtained by High Velocity Oxygen-Fuel (HVOF) and High Velocity Air-Fuel (HVAF) spraying, starting from high-energy ball milled feedstock powders. These coatings are intended as critical raw materials-free solutions against wear and corrosion. HVOF-sprayed coatings contain some more oxide inclusions than do HVAF ones, but, irrespective of the deposition conditions, TiC–40NiCr coatings are usually somewhat harder (800–900 HV0.3) than TiC–25NiCr ones. They also exhibit lower wear rates in ball-on-disc sliding tests against Al2O3 at room temperature. A hard asperity can indeed penetrate slightly deeper into TiC–25NiCr, as it deforms inelastically through microcracking. Bigger abrasive grooves are thus produced. The wear resistance of TiC–40NiCr coatings compares favourably to that of a Cr3C2-25% (NiCr) reference, and even approaches that of WC-10 wt%Co-4wt.%Cr. TiC–40NiCr coatings are also more corrosion resistant than both reference materials when tested by electrochemical polarization in a 3.5% NaCl solution. At 400 °C, to the contrary, TiC–25NiCr coatings exhibit better sliding wear resistance, whilst more severe abrasive grooving and adhesive tearing affect TiC–40NiCr samples. TiC–NiCr coatings are also unaffected by the transverse macro-cracking that was found to compromise the usefulness of WC-CoCr at 400 °C.

Abstract

TiC-based hardmetal coatings containing 25 or 40 vol% Ni-20 wt%Cr matrix (hereafter TiC–25NiCr and TiC–40NiCr) were obtained by High Velocity Oxygen-Fuel (HVOF) and High Velocity Air-Fuel (HVAF) spraying, starting from high-energy ball milled feedstock powders. These coatings are intended as critical raw materials-free solutions against wear and corrosion. HVOF-sprayed coatings contain some more oxide inclusions than do HVAF ones, but, irrespective of the deposition conditions, TiC–40NiCr coatings are usually somewhat harder (800–900 HV0.3) than TiC–25NiCr ones. They also exhibit lower wear rates in ball-on-disc sliding tests against Al2O3 at room temperature. A hard asperity can indeed penetrate slightly deeper into TiC–25NiCr, as it deforms inelastically through microcracking. Bigger abrasive grooves are thus produced. The wear resistance of TiC–40NiCr coatings compares favourably to that of a Cr3C2-25% (NiCr) reference, and even approaches that of WC-10 wt%Co-4wt.%Cr. TiC–40NiCr coatings are also more corrosion resistant than both reference materials when tested by electrochemical polarization in a 3.5% NaCl solution. At 400 °C, to the contrary, TiC–25NiCr coatings exhibit better sliding wear resistance, whilst more severe abrasive grooving and adhesive tearing affect TiC–40NiCr samples. TiC–NiCr coatings are also unaffected by the transverse macro-cracking that was found to compromise the usefulness of WC-CoCr at 400 °C.
