Laser Cladding of cermets for high-temperature erosive wear resistance for thermal power plant components

  • Developed the process by co-deposition of NiCr-Cr3C2 powder on SS-310 steel.
  • The produced clad is crack-free and defect-free with
    • A hardness of 1200-1400HV
    • 2% dilution
    • Clad thinckness of 0.9mm with uniform hardeness
  • A seven-fold improvement in erosive wear resistance
