Abstract :

One of the most important techniques employed to obtain drilling tools used in oil and mining fields is hardfacing. In this work,
the wear resistance and mechanical behavior of WC-Ni hardfacing with Ni-Cr as interlayer are carried out. Oxyacetylene
brazing technique is employed to diposit WC-Ni upon the substrate, which is a XC18 steel, whereas, the interlayer Ni-Cr is obtained
by thermal spray process. Several studies were done on the characterization of WC in metallic matrix, using different procedures of
coating such as, Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG), Laser and HVOF technique. The present work sums up the interlayer influence on the
mechanical properties of the coating, and exhbits the decarburization of WC particals causes by the temperature reached during
the hardfacing. The WC-Ni behavior is evaluated by tribology tests, using CSM instrument. Wear experiment is perfermed at
room temperature with dry sliding pin-on-disk experiment. While, metallographic examination is done using Scanning Electron
microscope (SEM) to exhibit the interfaces and to assess the decarburization of WC particles. Furtrhermore, hardness profile is
performed to evaluate the evolution of mechanical properties across the interfaces.
