Abstract: High Mn steel containing about 16% Mn was cladded to a low C steel by explosive welding. The experimental results showed that the bonding interface has a wavy morphology; the welding interface has the characteristics of both sharp transition and local melted zones between 2 metals. Hardness increased near the welding interface due to excess plastic deformation in the explosion area and phase transformation from g (f.c.c.) to a (b.c.c.).
Key Words: Explosive welding, Cladding, High Mn steel, Low C steel.
