THE STUDY OF HIGH-TEMPERATURE BEHAVIORS OF BRUSH-PLATING NI/NANO-SiO2 COMPOSITE COATING
In order to improve the high-temperature behaviors of hot work die steel in engineering application, the high-temperature wear and thermal fatigue behavior of brush plating Ni/nano-SiO2 composite coating have been investigated. The microstructure of Ni/nano-SiO2 composite coating has been analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). TEM observation of Ni/nano-SiO2 composite coating has shown that the added SiO2 particle with an average size of about 20 nm is uniformly distributed in Nickel matrix. The high-temperature wear behavior of Ni/nano-SiO2 composite coating has been investigated using a ball-onâblock test rig. The results from the high-temperature wear behaviors studies indicate that the steady-state friction coefficient and the specific wear rate of Ni/nano-SiO2 composite coating are lower than that of Cr12MoNi steel. The thermal fatigue tests were fulfilled by heating and quenching in water at a cycle period of 2 min. The results of thermal fatigue testing show that brush plating Ni/nano-SiO2 composite coating can improve thermal fatigue resistance as compared to the Cr12MoNi hot rolling tool steel.
