Remelted NiCrBSi coatings were examined using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction analysis, microhardness and wear testing. After wear tests, the surfaces of the worn samples were examined by 3D profilometry and scanning electron microscopy to investigate the effects of load and temperature on the coefficient of friction and wear resistance. In all the wear experiments, there was a momentary increase in the wear volume and a momentary decrease in the average coefficient of friction values at the elevated test temperatures. This behavior was caused by the stable oxide layer formed on the surface as a consequence of the elevated test temperature. Three dominant wear mechanisms were observed with the NiCrBSi coatings: delamination at room temperature, spalling and adhesion at 250 degrees C, and oxidation at 450 degrees C, whereas in the uncoated samples there was delamination at room temperature, and micro-cracking and oxidation, both at 250 degrees C and 450 degrees C. Remelted NiCrBSi coatings provided better wear resistance and lower coefficient of friction than uncoated STKM-13A steel, especially at higher temperatures.
