Ta–W co-alloying was realized by double glow plasma surface metallurgy technology, and their effects on high-temperature oxidation behavior of γ-TiAl were studied. Ta–W co-alloying coating was composed of a deposited layer and interdiffusion layer. The results of isothermal oxidation experiment indicated that a compact mixed oxide film of Ta and W was formed on the sample. The interdiffusion layer reduced the oxygen intrusion that improved the high-temperature oxidation resistance of γ-TiAl. The effects of Ta–W co-alloying on oxygen adsorption energy and electronic structure of γ-TiAl(111) were analyzed by first-principle calculation. The results showed that the optimal adsorption sites of O atoms changed from fcc-Al to hcp-Ti and hcp-Al, indicating that Ta–W co-alloying inhibited the diffusion of O. The electronic structure analysis of γ-TiAl(111) after Ta–W alloying indicated the affinity of Ti and O was inhibited, which resulted in decreased TiO2 in the oxide film.

Abstract High entropy alloys (HEA) show outstanding thermodynamic, mechanical or thermal properties as compared with pure metals or binary alloys. Among several kinds of HEAs, the refractory element containing HEAs exhibit relatively high thermal stability and better mechanical properties at elevated temperature. In this study, the V19.2Nb19.4Mo20.3Ta19.5W21.6 high entropy alloy thin films were deposited on the AISI 304 stainless steel substrates by a magnetron sputtering process. The oxidation ...

Abstract A novel silicon-aluminizing diffusion coating was prepared on γ-TiAl alloy by cold sprayed Al-12Si alloy coating and subsequent heat treatment. The oxidation resistance of silicon-aluminizing diffusion coating was studied at 900 °C for 1000 h and 120 cycles. The results showed that the coating decreased the inward oxygen diffusion and thus improved the oxidation resistance of bare alloy effectively. The microstructure evolution of the diffusion coating was investigated. Possible mechani...

The microstructure, the mechanical properties and the oxidation behavior of a novel Ti-46.5Al-3Ta-2Cr-0.2W (at%) alloy after hot extrusion were investigated. The results show that the alloy is mainly composed of γ and α2 phases, which has fine near lamellar microstructure with colony sizes of 50∼70 μm after hot extrusion. The different microstructures after hot extrusion were obtained by different cooling rates, and a great amount of massive phase were found at grain boundaries by oil quenching....

Abstract Alloys based on γ-TiAl are lightweight materials with attractive mechanical properties at high temperatures. Although these alloys reveal a superior resistance against environmental attack compared to titanium and 2-based alloys, efficient protection is required for industrial applications at temperatures between 800 and 1050 °C. Extensive research in order to solve this problem started more than 30 years ago. This review provides a summary of the different concepts based on surface mod...

Abstract The oxidation behavior of γ-TiAl with Ta surface coating fabricated by double glow plasma surface alloying technology was investigated by thermogravimetric method. Oxidation experiments were carried out at 750 °C and 850 °C in air for 100 h. The modification layer was comprised of deposition layer and diffusion layer, which metallurgically adhered to the substrate. Tantalum element decreased with the case depth. The oxidation morphology was studied by a scanning electron microscope and ...

Abstract TiAl-based alloys containing Nb, Mo and Cr have been produced by induction melting both under an Ar atmosphere and in vacuum. Fracture toughness and isothermal oxidation tests at 900 °C have been performed on a number of alloys in order to evaluate the effect of alloying elements on both fracture toughness and hot corrosion. The results highlighted that there is an alloy composition range that could allow to obtain a good compromise between high temperature oxidation resistance and frac...

Abstract In this work, Ti–46.6Al, Ti–45.2Al–7.2Nb and Ti–44.8Al–6.6Ta alloys were siliconized by being buried in Si powder followed by heating (900, 1000 and 1100 °C for 2–12 h). Observation of the silicide formation kinetics showed that at 900 °C, the layers grow linearly with time. Meanwhile, at 1000 and 1100 °C, the growth is suppressed after the first two hours of siliconizing. Structure and composition observations revealed that, regardless of the composition of the substrate, the silicide ...
