Nickel-Base Hardfacing Alloys for High Temperature Applications

S. Atamert and H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia


Conventional nickel base hardfacing alloys deposited by arc welding usually have a nominally single phase microstructure and derive their hot strength primarily from solid solution strengthening. The present work is an attempt at designing improved alloys containing large volume fractions of ordered precipitates or intermetallic compounds. The alloy design has been carried out using a computer model capable of estimating microstructure and strength as a function of many variables. The results are tested experimentally against cast samples which simulate welding conditions during manual metal arc welding.
