This paper shows that the laser cladding and alloying of a Ni-base superalloy on a substrate of plain carbon steel can be successfully carried out by irradiating a bilayer sample formed by metallic sheets mechanically clamped together. Under laser irradiation, both the overlayer and the substrate are locally melted. Controlled dilution of the alloy elements of the superalloy in the melted pool allows a variety of surface chemical compositions and microstructures to be obtained. © 1994 Chapman & Hall.
