Investigation of micro-scale abrasion-corrosion of WC-based sintered hardmetal and sprayed coating using in situ electrochemical current-noise measurements

Record type: Article

The micro-scale wear–corrosion interactions of WC-based sintered hardmetals and sprayed coatings are typically investigated by comparing the wear-rates in corrosive environments with neutral (pH 7) conditions and inferring electrochemical activity. However, for a greater understanding of the wear–corrosion interactions, there is a need to examine the repassivation kinetics during micro-abrasion tests under different pH conditions. This paper details in situ electrochemical current-noise measurements performed using a modified micro-abrasion tester to elucidate these wear–corrosion interactions for pH 7–13 conditions for sintered WC–5.7Co–0.3Cr and sprayed WC–10Co–4Cr specimens. Electrochemical measurements and SEM micrographs of worn surfaces are used to detail the degradation process. Discussion will focus on the wear–corrosion interactions present under neutral and alkaline conditions for sintered and sprayed specimens and the influence of microstructure on the electrochemical activity will be detailed.
