Eagle Superabrasives is a premier supplier of superabrasive wheels and other superabrasive products.
Based out of Hickory, North Carolina, we are able to ship 90% of orders same-day. Custom orders can be shipped in as little as seven days.
We keep an extensive inventory of over 6,000 diamond, CBN and CDX wheels in stock, many of which are perfect for grinding HVOF coatings.
Coating with HVOF is a thermal spraying technique in which melted or heated materials are sprayed onto a surface. Thermal spraying materials can provide thick coatings that range from 20-micron to several millimeters if needed.
HVOF (high velocity oxy-fuel) is used on materials such as metals, alloys, ceramics and composites. These coatings are typically used to deposit wear- and corrosion-resistant coatings on materials that are going to be used in jobs that are particularly tough on parts, in industries such as the oil and gas industry.
Different Types of HVOF Sprays
HVOF sprays vary depending on the fuel used. This fuel can be hydrogen, natural gas or kerosene. The oxygen source, whether pure or a compressed air feed, is another variant considered when determining the type of spray to use.
Advantages of HVOF Coatings
Utilizing the advantages of HVOF coating allows for higher performance and less maintenance of the part being hardened.
HVOF is ideal for coating large components and has a relatively cool coating process. HVOF is widely used for the production of high-quality, wear-resistant coatings of carbide, stellite, as well as “MCrAIY” coatings. MCrAIY stands for Metals (nickel, cobalt, iron or a combination), Cr (chromium), Al (aluminum) and Y (yttrium).
The coatings are so hard that superabrasive wheels are required in order to grind them down to the proper shape, size and consistency.
