Plasma Surface Treatment of Aluminum Extrusion Die Choi, In Kyu; Lee, Su Young; Kim, Sang Ho;
Wear characteristic of the nitrided SKD61 which is a typical mold material using for the extrusion of Al6061 alloy was investigated. The surface of SKD61 was nitrided by salt bath and plasma processes. The thickness of surface nitride layer was about . Reciprocating friction wear test conducted using pin on disk type indicated the plasma treatment followed salt bath has a lower friction coefficient and a smaller adhesive wear with Al6061 alloy. That was identified by the which has a better wear resistance than FeN mainly formed by plasma nitriding.
