The Plasma Transferred Arc (PTA) hardfacing allows for homogeneous refined microstructure, low distortion and dilution resulting on enhanced surface properties when compared to hardfacing by conventional welding processes. This paper deals with PTA surfacing of a structural steel with a consumable containing TiC. TiC is a very hard refractory material finding increasing usage for wear resistance application. The composition and amount of heat input evidently affect the microstructure anddoi:10.4236/jmmce.2014.23020 fatcat:nzeule5oqbhjtkapmbfs7j5kiq
