A wide range of parts and equipment of chemical, oil, agricultural, machine-building, transport, energy and other industries are operated under abrasive wear conditions. In Ukraine, electric arc surfacing with flux-cored wires of the Fe–Cr–B–C system is widely used to protect against abrasive wear and restore worn surfaces by surfacing. Such fluxcored wires have a low cost and the deposited metal has a satisfactory wear resistance. However, the main disadvantage of the layers deposited by such flux-cored wires, are dendrites of the first and second order with acicular morphology. Sharp peaks of the solid phase act as stress concentrators, from which after impact the cracking of the deposited metal begins, followed by its chipping. It is known that the formation of rounded reinforcing phases reduces the concentration of stresses in the deposited layer and, as a consequence, increases wear resistance. This paper proposes the dispersion of structural components in the deposited metal by surfacing under the action of mechanical vibration on the deposited metal, which is especially rational to use for manufacture by surfacing of bimetallic wear plates, and for large-sized parts it is proposed to perform a dispersion of structural components in the deposited metal with modifying charge flux-cored wires of Fe–Cr–B–C system by adding PAM-4 powder of aluminium-magnesium master alloy to it. 5 Ref., 2 Tables, 5 Figures.
Keywords: surfacing, bimetallic sheets, wear resistance, boride inclusions
