Application of Tungsten Carbide Coatings on Ultra High Strength Steels High Velocity Oxygen / Fuel Process
|Publication Date:||1 February 2016|
This specification covers engineering requirements for applying tungsten carbide thermal spray coatings to ultra high strength steels (220 ksi and above) utilizing high velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) combustion driven processes and the properties for such coatings. The processes and procedures herein apply only to the properties of the as-deposited coating.
This process has been used typically to provide coatings that possess lower porosity and higher adhesive and/or cohesive strength than generally attainable with plasma spray and for applications requiring wear, heat, and corrosion resistance or dimensional restoration that were traditionally chrome plated. However, usage is not limited to such applications.
Safety - Hazardous Materials
While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
