Fusing of Sprayed Ni-base Coatings by Induction Heating
Search this Article
In this research, the optimum temperature for induction fusing of Ni-base alloy coatings was studied, and the properties and microstructures of coatings were investigated. The properties were also compared with those of coatings that were fused with either an oxy-acetylene flame or in a furnace. A temperature range from 1323K to 1343K was the optimum condition for induction fusing. Induction fusing at this temperature achieved the following properties ; a coating hardness of up to 800Hv, and coatings that were denser and with a smoother surface than those fused with flames or in a furnace.
