Abstract

A thick layer of NiXTiY (NiTi and NiTi2) was deposited on Ti-6Al-4V alloy by tungsten inertgas (TIG) cladding process using Ni and Ti powder mixture prepared by ball milling route as precursor. The analysis shows that the microstructure of the produced NiTi coating principally governs by the heat input, which was controlled through theem ployed processing current. The hardness of the NiTi clad layer measured by Vickers micro-indentationmethod was found reasonably higher as compared toTi-6Al-4V alloy substrate. The XRD and EDS analysis of the clad layer revealed the formation of NiTi and NiTi2as major phases along with some un reacted Ti and TiAl3intermetallic. The sliding abrasive wearof the coating performed against abrasive disc shows upto9.5 times reduction in the wear value as compared to the uncoated Ti-6Al-4V alloy as measured by its height loss. The experimental results revealed an ample effect of the TIG current on the hardness value and wear characteristic of the clad layer, which is predominantly dependent on the morphology and percentage of phase constituent formed. The produced NiTi coating has prospective applications in biomedical, where inadequate wear resistance of Ti-6Al-4V alloy is the major concern for its use.
