Abstract

In many industrial applications, the material surface is, most of the time, the preponderant factor in the life time of the piece. In such cases, it is important to be able to improve the superficial properties of the material1,2,3,4. One of the numerous known solutions 5,6,7,8, is to deposed, where the constraints are supposed to occur, a hardfacing alloy which have the desired wear resistance properties: one calls that the cladding process.
