AlCoCrFeNiTi high-entropy alloy coatings (HEACs) were prepared by mechanical alloying (MA) and laser cladding (LC) process on H13 hot-working die steel substrate. Phase evolution, microstructure, and mechanical properties of the alloyed powder and HEACs were investigated in detail. The final milling AlCoCrFeNiTi coating powders exhibited simple body centered cubic (BCC) phase and mean granular size of less than 4 μm. With the increase of heat input of the laser, partial BCC phase transformed into minor face centered cubic (FCC) phase during LC. AlCoCrFeNiTi HEACs showed excellent metallurgical bonding with the substrate, and few defects. Moreover, the microhardness of AlCoCrFeNiTi HEACs reached 1069 HV due to the existence of the hard oxidation and the second phase grains, which are about five times that of the substrate. The laser surface cladding HEACs exhibited deteriorated tensile property compared with that of the substrate and the fracture generally occurred in the region of HEACs. The fracture mechanism of AlCoCrFeNiTi HEACs was dominated by the comprehensive influence of brittle fracture and ductile fracture. View Full-Text
