The influence of a Mo addition on the interfacial morphologies and corrosion resistances of novel Fe-Cr-B alloys in molten aluminum at 750 °C was systematically investigated using scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffractometer, electron probe microanalysis, and transmission electron microscopy. The results indicated that Mo could not only strengthen the matrix but also facilitate the formation of borides. Furthermore, the microstructures of Mo-rich M2B boride changed from a local eutectic net-like structure to a typical coarse dendritic structure and a blocky hypereutectic structure with increasing Mo addition. This was true of the blocky Mo-rich M2B boride, rod-like Cr-rich M2B boride and the corrosion products, which had a synergistic effect on retarding of the diffusion of molten aluminum. Notably, the corrosion resistance of the Fe-Cr-B-Mo alloy, with an 8.3 wt.% Mo addition, was 3.8 times higher than that of H13 steel. View Full-Text
