Friction surfacing is a solid state processing technology in the context of localized surface engineering. It is mainly used for coating applications to repair damaged or worn parts, to improve wear and corrosion resistance, to enhance surface properties at a specified area of the parts and tools and also to make metal matrix composites. This process is an environment-friendly technique in which friction between the substrate and consumable rod and the deformation of the consumable rod is the only source to generate heat. The different parameters for this process are rotational speed, pressure or force applied, tilt angle and friction time. The present study is a review of microstructructural evaluation of different materials after the friction surfacing process.
