High-entropy alloys have been found to have novel microstructures and unique properties. The main method of manufacturing is vacuum arc remelting. As in situ cladding laser cladding has capability of achieving a controllable dilution ratio, fabricating high-entropy alloy by laser cladding is of great significance and potential for extensive use. In this study, a novel Al xFeCoNiCuCr high-entropy alloy system was manufactured as the thin layer of the substrate by laser cladding; also high temperature hardness, abrasion performance, corrosion nature of the AlxFeCoNiCuCr high-entropy alloy were tested under the different ratio of aluminum. This study shows higher aluminum clad exhibit higher hardness, better abrasion resistance and corrosion resistance. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
