Abstract

NiCr/hBN self-lubricating composites with hBN solid-lubricant contents of 8%, 9%, 10%, 11%, and 12% (mass fractions) were prepared by powder-metallurgy method. Their tribological properties at room temperature and 600, 700, and 800 °C were studied. SEM and XRD were performed to analyze their wear-surface morphology and abrasive-dust composition. Results indicate that the NiCr/hBN self-lubricating composites have favorable tribological properties at room temperature and 600 °C. The optimum comprehensive friction and wear performance are achieved at 10% hBN, and the main wear mechanism is abrasive wear. At 700 and 800 °C, the friction and wear properties of NiCr/hBN self-lubricating composites obviously decline. The wear surface experiences oxidation and the spinel oxides Cr2O3, NiCr2O4, and CrBO3 are formed. The main wear mechanism becomes combined scratching and glue form of adhesive wear, leading to greatly increased wear rate for the NiCr/hBN sel-lubricating composites. View Full-Text
