Investigation of Tribological Properties of Plasma Sprayed Ceramic Coating AISI-1020 Stainless Steel


Objective: This work highlights on the effect of surface treatment on stainless steel in order to increase corrosion resistance. Methods: Tribological tests were conducted for 1020 graded stainless steels with plasma spray coating on it at a temperature of 800 C-1200 C. ASTM G99 steel specimens with Cu-Al as a top coat and Ni-Cr as a bond coat were considered for dry sliding wear characteristics by using a pin-on-disc wear test rig. Weight loss was determined by considering three parameters. L8 orthogonal array and ANOVA was conducted for various combinations. Findings: Surface treatment like coating helps in building corrosion resistance for steels. Applications: As the surface treatment is a fundamental part in manufacturing system this particular process can be implemented in several of parts in automobiles.
