This paper aims to enhance the corrosive wear and electrochemical corrosion of Ti–6Al–4V alloy.
A CoCrAlYTaSi alloy coating was fabricated on Ti–6Al–4V alloy using a laser thermal spraying (LTS). The surface and cross-section morphologies, chemical elements, phases and bonding strength of the obtained coating were analyzed using a scanning electron microscope, energy dispersive spectroscope, X-ray diffraction and scratch test, respectively, The corrosive wear and electrochemical corrosion of CoCrAlYTaSi coating in 3.5 Wt.% NaCl solution were investigated using a wear tester and electrochemical workstation, respectively.
The average coefficient of frictions (COFs) of CoCrAlYTaSi coating under the wear loads of 2, 4 and 6 N are 1.31, 1.02 and 0.88, respectively; and the corresponding wear rates are 0.66 × 10−4, 1.10 × 10−4 and 1.30 × 10−4 mm3·N–1·m–1, respectively. The wear mechanism under the wear load of 2 N is abrasive wear, while those under the wear loads of 4 and 6 N are adhesive wear and abrasive wear. The charge transfer resistance of CoCrAlYTaSi coating is 5.368 × 105 Ω·cm2, higher than 2.193 × 105 of the substrate.
In this study, a CoCrAlYTaSi coating was firstly fabricated on Ti–6Al–4V alloy using a LTS. Its corrosive wear and electrochemical corrosion in 3.5 Wt.% NaCl solution were investigated, which played a protective role of corrosive wear on Ti–6Al–4V alloy.
