Investigations of wear resistance and tensile strength of steel products with diffusional zinc coating obtained in zinc powders with a nanocrystallized surface of powder particles were carried out. The effect of the structural state of the coating on the wear resistance and adhesive grasping with a steel counterbody was established. The prospects of the nanogalvanizing process to improve the strength of steel products are shown.
The development of technologies in modern machine building aims at improving the mechanical and technological properties of the materials. The present study presents an improvement in the mechanical properties of low carbon steels by thermoffusion coatings with nanofibers obtained under different heat treatment regimes. Depending on the type of heat treatment and the size of the zinc particles, different gradient layers can be obtained in depth. This of course reflects positively on the chemical resistance of the material. In addition, it positively affects the mechanical properties of the material by increasing mechanical strength and technological properties by improving the resistance to plastic deformation. With these first studies, there is an impetus for another look to improve the properties of low-carbon steels that are widely applicable in the field of machine building.
