The Effect of Cladding Parameters on Microstructure and Microhardness of 308L Stainless Steel Single Bead Clad Deposited on Cast Iron Using Gas Metal Arc Heat Source12 June 2019 Institute of Materials, Malaysia
Cladding is a process of depositing a new surface layer-by-layer on top of substrate material in which the process will alter the properties of substrate due to heating and cooling cycle of the process. Cladding of stainless steel and superalloy materials onto low alloy substrates is a cost-effective industrial application when good corrosion or wear resistance is required. Cladding using gas metal arc welding (GMAW) as a heat source is to enhance material surface properties from corrosion and wear resistance, in addition to repairing the damage part by depositing it with stainless steel molten wire layer-by-layer to cover the required area. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of cladding parameters on the microstructure and microhardness properties of stainless steel single bead clad deposited on mild steel substrate.
