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.
