A novel surface cladding technique was developed to prepare the FeCrNiMn alloy and high carbon steel cladding layers, and the microhardness, bonding strength, abrasion wear and corrosion resistance were investigated. The microstructures of the cladding layers were analyzed by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS). The results show that the bonding strength between the substrate and the two cladding layers were (432.6±21) and (438.3±12) MPa,respectively. Vickers hardness values of the two cladding layers were HV 418.5 and HV 329.6, respectively. The corrosion current densities of the two coatings were 2.926×10–6 and 6.858×10–6 A/cm2 after electrochemical corrosion test in 3.5% NaCl solution, and the wear rate were 1.78×10–7 and 1.46×10–6 mm3/mN after sliding wear test, respectively. This indicates that a well metallurgical bonding between the coating and the substrate was achieved, the abrasion wear and corrosion resistance of both coatings had been greatly improved compared with the substrate. The novel cladding technology is promising for preparing wear-and-corrosion resistant coatings.
