Abstract

TiC particle-reinforced AISI 316l stainless-steel matrix composites were prepared using conventional powder metallurgy technology. The effect of TiC content on the microstructure and properties of these composites has been investigated with a particular emphasis upon hardness, wear resistance and corrosion resistance in sea water environments. The results showed that TiC particle reinforcement improved the hardness, wear resistance and corrosion resistance of AISI 316l stainless steel. The higher TiC content in the studied composites resulted in a higher hardness of the wear surface and a lower wear rate. The best corrosion resistance in sea water was achieved for sintered AISI 316l – 5% TiC composite.
