Industrial Plating Company uses a unique line of powders specifically engineered for HVOF Coatings. The bond strength of these coatings is typically higher than those achieved with other thermal spray methods. HVOF Coatings have been shown to display superior wear, which can be attributed to the unique combination of higher hardness, higher density, and low porosity levels.
HVOF Coatings typically provide up to 5x the resistance to wear and particle erosion as their Plasma applied equivalents. For example, Tungsten Carbide coatings deposited utilizing HVOF thermal spray technology can provide excellent wear resistance and anti-galling characteristics for an array of industrial applications. Various carbide particle sizes and processing techniques are employed that allow us to produce coatings tailored to each applications need.
