The present contribution deals with the influence of tribological conditions on coating quality. Two types of coatings were selected for analysis WC-WB-CO and WC-FeCrAl, to advise that a new type of coating - carbide green. These coatings were applied to the base material AISI 316L of technology HVOF – High velocity oxygen fuel. The aim of the experimental study was to determine the quality coatings and its resistance to abrasive wear, depending on the number of thermal cycles. It was evaluated hardness, thickness, the resistance to abrasive wear in free abrasives and firmly bonded abrasives. Results of experiments showed a higher resistance of the coating WC-Co-WB.
The article is aimed at evaluation of chosen properties of thermally sprayed coatings based on tungsten carbide. It was evaluated two types of coatings – WC-FeCrAl and WC-WB-Co. The coatings were deposited on basic material steel AISI 316L. The aim of experimental works was to determine the quality and resistance of coatings in corrosion environment depending on number of thermal cycles. The quality of coatings was evaluated by determination of their adhesion depending on thermal cycles, determination of microhardness and indentation fracture toughness. Coatings were exposed in tribo-corrosion conditions with the presence of 1% NaCl. The results of experimental showed a higher quality of coating WC-WB-Co.
