The paper presents the procedure and results of investigation of hot hardness of the deposited high-chromium cast irons with different level of alloying of 450Kh30M, 500Kh22B7, 500Kh22B7M7V2F, 300Kh25S3N2G2 type, as well as nickel-chromium-carbide alloy 500Kh40N40S2GRTs. It is determined that hot hardness of deposited metal to a significant extent depends on the presence and types of carbides in metal structure. For relatively low-alloyed high-chromium cast irons, hardness drops at temperature rise and increases at the content of chromium up to 30 % and that of carbon up to 5 %. Alloys doped with chromium, niobium, molybdenum, tungsten and vanadium preserve high hardness up to 650 °C temperature. Niobium is important for indicated alloys. It plays a role of modifier delaying growth of primary chromium carbides, and forming hard cubic niobium carbide. Nickel-chromium-carbide alloy preserves high hardness up to 650 °C temperature due to the presence of high concentration of higher chromium carbides in a nickel-based matrix. Wear resistance of deposited alloys decreases with the rise of temperature in accordance with lowering of deposited metal hardness. 12 Ref. 3 Tables, 3 Figures.
