Abstract

Microwave cladding has emerged as a noble surface modification method. Microwave cladding uses the principle of microwave hybrid heating in which a suitable separator material is used. In the present work, Ni/wc based composite clads were developed on austenitic steel through microwave heating route at 900W and 2.45GHz. The effect of various preheating temperature of raw powders and different thickness of separator on the development of composite clads have been analyzed. It was observed that the minimum processing time for development of clad was achieved at 1 mm thickness of susceptor and 180 °C of preheating temperature.

Keywords: Separator; Microwave cladding; Hybrid heating
