Abstract: In this paper, joining of Hastelloy has been successfully carried out by microwave hybrid heating process. The joints were developed by using a microwave oven at a frequency of 2.45 GHz and 900 W. A thin layer of slurry consisting of nickel-based powder and epoxy resin was introduced between the faying surfaces. The joints obtained by microwave hybrid heating were characterized by XRD, SEM–EDS, Vicker's microhardness, and tensile tests. Microstructure analysis revealed the formation of equiaxed grains, and res…
