Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The technique of mechanical alloying (MA) was used to coat the metal substrate with other metals. The Al-Ti and Al-Ni binary systems were investigated, at that, all the elements were used both as substrates and as coating powders. Thickness and quality of coating depending on the MA treatment parameters, such as intensity and duration of milling, amount of loaded powder, were investigated. As-synthesized coatings showed structures with high apparent density and free of porosity. However, the surface morphology of the MA-coatings was very rough. Annealing treatment led to the leveling of surface microstructure and formation of different aluminide phases in the coatings. MA allows to produce thick coatings for a relatively short time with good adherence.
