In the long history of science and technology development, one goal is to diffuse solid alloy elements into the surface of steel materials to form surface alloys with excellent physical and chemical properties. On the basis of plasma nitriding technology, double glow plasma surface metallurgy technology has answered this challenge. This technology, which seems to be a modern-day alchemy, can use any element in the periodic table of chemical elements, including solid metal elements and their…

Double Glow Plasma Surface Alloyed Burn-resistant Titanium Alloy
Conventional titanium alloy may be ignited and burnt under high temperature, high pressure and high gas flow velocity condition. In order to avoid this problem, we have developed a new kind of
Corrosion property of copperized layer on Zr formed by double glow plasma surface alloying technique
Zr and its alloys have excellent mechanical properties as new structural material, but in specific application environment, its corrosion resistance still needs to be further explored. In this work,
Plasma surface Cu alloyed layer as a lubricant on stainless steel sheet: Wear characteristics and on-job performance in incremental forming
To solve the problems of poor forming and easy adhesion of the stainless steel, Cu alloyed layer on the stainless steels was prepared by the double glow plasma surface alloying technique. The
Effect of surface etching on the oxidation behavior of plasma chromizing-treated AISI440B stainless steel
Abstract Double glow plasma surface alloying was applied to prepare chromizing layer in the surface of AISI440B stainless steel. Prior to chromizing, the stainless steel was etched by microwave
Oxidation Behavior of TiAl-Based Alloy Modified by Double-Glow Plasma Surface Alloying with Cr–Mo
Abstract A Cr–Mo alloyed layer was prepared on a TiAl-based alloy using plasma surface alloying technique. The isothermal oxidation kinetics of the untreated and treated samples was examined at 850
