|Coatings for forging dies
I would like to know if there are any coating that can be used in hot forging dies. Can i use MCrAly coatings in order to prevent thermal fatigue? Is there any surface treatment that support/resist to stresses(thermal + mechanical) invoveld in hot forging process?
Apologies for bad english
Thanks a lot

Hi Marcio Matos dos Santos
Welcome to the Surface Engineering Forum.
My experience is a little lacking in this area, so I hope we have other members who will give their advice.
Thermochemical treatments like boriding, chromising and vanadium/niobium carbide diffusion processes come to mind as being potential candidates. MCrAlY coatings, though providing excellent high temperature oxidation resistance, I think will lack the strength, low friction and anti-adhesive welding characteristics required for this process.
