Poster summary

New results about the influence of a small iron borided layer (~36 µm) obtained by powder-pack boriding process (PPBP) and diffusion annealing post-process (DAP) were evaluated. Dry sliding wear tests on PPBP, PPBP+DAP and untreated AISI 1018 steel were performed under the pin-on-disc configuration using two different counterparts (Al2O3/WC). Also, the contact pressures of the layer/substrate system were evaluated using the finite element model. The results showed that the Al2O3 ball presented the major coupling, and the PPBP+DAP reduces the specific wear rate around ~304 times related to the untreated AISI 1018 steel under severe sliding condition.
