Abstract

Certain amounts of precipitate in CoCrFeNiMox (simplified as Mox) is beneficial to the wear resistance; however, the optimal chemical content of Mo and the anti-wear mechanism behind it remains unclear. The Mox (x = 0, 0.3, 0.5, 1, 1.5 in molar ratio) high entropy alloys (HEAs) were manufactured, the evolution of their microstructure, mechanical, friction, and wear properties with Mo content was studied. The results displayed that the mechanical properties of the FCC solid solution were enhanced from Mo0 to Mo0.3, then kept unchanged till x = 1.5. The volume fraction of the precipitates increased with Mo content. The Mo1 presents the lower average friction coefficient and wear rate, attributed to the desired types, amount, size, distribution of the hard sigma and mu phases in the ductile FCC solid solution. The detailed mechanism behind their tribological behaviors were discussed in the manuscript.
