Enhancing the oxidation resistance along with sufficiently improved mechanical properties of low carbon steel has always been a challenging task for surfacing industry. Modern automobile industry is looking for joining the dissimilar ferrous and non-ferrous metals to reduce the weight of the overall structure and not compromising the strength of the fabrications. This paper deals with the deposition of iron-aluminium intermetallic over a low carbon substrate using gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) process. Oxidation resistance of the iron and aluminium metal powders deposits in varying ratios and few mechanical and metallurgical properties such as microhardness, microstructure and wear resistance were investigated and are reported in the present paper.
