HVOF (High Velocity Oxy Fuel) is a thermal spray process with high-velocity, low-temperature spraying used for the production of carbide and metallic coatings. HVOF coatings are typically done for wear & corrosion protection of industrial components operating in harsh environment. In HVOF process, carbide and alloy powders are fed into a combustion chamber where it is melted and accelerated to supersonic velocities. These semi-molten particles are deposited on substrate leads to rapid cooling to form a coating layer which has extremely high density & bond strength. HVOF provides mechanical bonded coatings which impart corrosion, erosion, abrasion and sliding wear resistant characteristics to the coated components. ATS are technology specialists in HVOF process and provide wide range of coatings to suit specific applications & customer needs. We are backed by qualified and experienced team in our facilities to produce a wide variety of wear resist components to exacting standards with reliable, repeatable results. What is Thermal Spray? Thermal spray is an industrial coating process that heats or melts metallic or ceramic materials and deposits them onto a surface. It is used for surface enhancement or surface remanufacture. How Does Thermal Spray Work? Thermal spraying uses heat, depending upon the metallurgical properties of the coating material, and various carrier gases, depending upon the thermal spray process. Each process has different benefits as the result of these temperatures and process characteristics. A thermal spray process should be carefully selected depending upon the desired coating characteristics such as; wear resistance, corrosion resistance, thermal barrier, and many more. Other factors include: size and shape, substrate material and the operating environment of the component. Each spray process has strengths and application limits.
