Research Paper


The influence of applying two different heat treatments such as: deep cryogenic and tempering on dry/wet abrasive wear resistance of twin wire arc spray martensitic AISI 420 coatings was evaluated by using a modified rubber wheel type test apparatus. A load dependency was observed on the abrasive wear rate behavior of both; dry and wet tests. Three body (rolling) and two body (sliding) wear mechanisms were identified in dry conditions, prevailing rolling at lower and higher loads. However, at higher loads, more presence of grooving and pits formation was observed. Coatings tempered at 205 °C/1 h displayed better wear resistance than cryogenic treated ones. A change in wear mechanism between dry and wet conditions was observed; two body wear mechanism predominated respect to three body. In both; dry and wet conditions the microstructure (several inter-splat oxides) as well as strain and residual stress promotes brittle material removal which was more evident in cryogenic and as-sprayed samples during dry test and at higher loads in wet conditions.
