Abstract : Analysis of the sliding wear and microstructural characteristics of iron based composite coatings are discussed. The feedstock, which consisted of 30% SiC and 70% FeNiCrMo, was mechanically combined using a ball milling process. A steel substrate made of ASTM-SA213-T11 was then sprayed with the prepared feedstock using the High Velocity Oxy Fuel (HVOF) process. The coating and substrate were put through a sliding test using a pin-on disc tribometer while being subjected to typical loads of 10 and 20 N at 200°C and 300°C as well as ambient conditions without lubrication. The samples were subjected to microstructures and phase studies using SEM and XRD techniques. Wear characteristics including friction coefficient, volumetric material loss, and wear rates of the coating and substrate were calculated using system-produced data. The hardness and wear resistance of the coated samples were improved owing to the coating region containing hard carbide phases such as SiC and Fe2C.
