The aim of the present work is to investigate the feasibility and effects of a selective postdeposition laser treatment on titanium coatings. Commercially pure titanium grade 2 powders were deposited by means of a cold spray process on aluminum alloy AA2024-T3 sheets. The surface treatment of the coating was realized using a 220 W diode laser. The influence of heat input and dimensional features of coating layer and substrate was assessed by an experimental campaign conducted following a design of experiments approach. Optical and scanning electron microscopy analysis of the microstructure of the deposited and treated material as well as microhardness measurements showed the formation of a compact layer of titanium oxide on the coating surface and the preservation of the temper state of the aluminum substrate.

Abstract

The aim of the present work is to investigate the feasibility and effects of a selective postdeposition laser treatment on titanium coatings. Commercially pure titanium grade 2 powders were deposited by means of a cold spray process on aluminum alloy AA2024-T3 sheets. The surface treatment of the coating was realized using a 220 W diode laser. The influence of heat input and dimensional features of coating layer and substrate was assessed by an experimental campaign conducted following a design of experiments approach. Optical and scanning electron microscopy analysis of the microstructure of the deposited and treated material as well as microhardness measurements showed the formation of a compact layer of titanium oxide on the coating surface and the preservation of the temper state of the aluminum substrate.
