In this study the effect of temperature variation of the thermo-reactive deposition (TRD) process on carbide layer formation on SUJ2 steel substrates by pack cementation using Ferrochromium powder as carbide former was studied. This process was carried out on SUJ2 steel substrates at temperatures of 900, 980 and 1060 °C for 6 hours. The effect of temperature on layer thickness, homogenity and hardness was studied. Results show that the higher the temperature the thicker the layer formed on the substrate surfaces. Furthermore the XRD results show that the layer formed by this process is chromium carbide. The average microhardness of the layer for 3 process temperature variations is around 1750 HV while the wear rate is around 7 x 10-4 mm3/m.
