Abstract

Laser cladding is employed to manufacture composite coatings containing self-lubricating and wear-resistant abrasive particles. The injection of particles into the melt pool during laser cladding of stainless steel and Inconel 625 resulted in the formation of these coatings. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) are used to characterize the microstructure of the coatings. The composite coatings provided low friction coefficients and high resistance to wear, corrosion and oxidation.
