What is HVOF Coatings?

HVOF stands for High velocity oxygen fuel. It is a type of thermal spraying technique that is used for coating processes for both large and small surfaces. Thermal spraying is the process in which melted (or heated) materials are sprayed onto a surface. The thermal spray, in this case HOVF, can be applied in the range of twenty microns to several millimeters depending on the process chosen. Coating materials that are eligible for HVOF thermal spraying include metals, alloys, ceramics, plastics and composites.

 

Coating Quality of HVOF

Coating Quality is usually judge by measuring the porosity, oxide content, macro and micro-hardness, bond strength and surface roughness. The higher the quality of coating the more corrosion resistant it becomes on materials with ceramic and metallic layers. The HVOF coating process produces a much superior bond strength and coating density compared to other thermal spraying techniques.

 

Grinding HVOF

Due to HVOF Coatings being so effective in producing corrosion resistant and stronger materials, grinding becomes much more difficult. That is where superabrasive wheels from Eagle Superabrasives comes into play. Our diamond wheel and cbn wheel lineup, are made to order and built with the thought of HVOF coatings in mind. We take the two hardest superabrasives known and combine them with six different core materials. We bond them together with our proprietary bonding system, ensuring the quality and life of the wheel is superior to competitors as well as the HVOF coating. Grinding HVOF coated materials becomes much easier with fewer wheel changes and dressings. Saving you time and money!
