In this section, the effect of tempering treatment on microstructure, hardness, impact and wear resistance is investigated.
Cryogenically soaking chromium base die steel under dry conditions at temperatures of-154[degrees]C and -184[degrees]C resulted in higher wear resistance after 21 hours--but less wear resistance after 36 hours.
Helmut Gremer, senior engineer for global machining technology, said the new insert complements Kennametal's existing PcBN grades KBH20 and KB5630 by providing the extreme wear resistance needed to successfully turn hardened metals up to 65Rc, especially where very fine surface finishes are required.
Compared with PTFE, PFA has much better heat resistance and keeps better mechanical properties at high temperature, leading to better wear resistance. Lower wear rates signify that PFA composites can work better than PTFE composites at higher temperatures.
SiZBN, a unique, hot-pressed composite ceramic combines the lubricating properties of boron nitride, extreme refractory of zirconia, and wear resistance and strength of SiAlON.
A typical HX900 product has a wear resistance comparable with cemented carbide and a strength that is 80 to 90 percent of the strength of pure nodular iron.
"Through customer insights, we recognized a gap in the marketplace for a resin that brought toughness and wear resistance for a number of specialty applications, which are commonly known to be challenging during processing," says Matt Osborne, Invista global business manager.
"Through customer insights, we recognized a gap in the marketplace for a resin that brought toughness and wear resistance for a number of specialty applications, which are commonly known to be challenging during processing," says Matt Osborne, global business manager, Invista Nylon Polymer." Our team was able to create multiple grades of different viscosities to help solve that challenge.
OVAKO reports it has launched WR-Steel, with high wear resistance, offering manufacturers greater design advantages.
The new material is intended for application in card printers, as a security laminate to protect the photo and other data, while also preventing fading of the photo and with five-times better wear resistance. In serving a dual purpose, the material can replace two laminates often applied to ID cards: one for wear resistance and one for security.
