What is HVOF?
HVOF is a type of thermal spray that utilizes combustion of gases to apply coatings for the strengthening of materials. HVOF uses gases such as hydrogen or liquid fuel such as kerosene. Fuel and oxygen mix, thus combusting and creating a high velocity which is used to propel particles at supersonic speeds. One of the great benefits of spraying at high combustion pressure is high particle velocity and resulting in high coating quality. This high quality coating creates a hard surface that is praised in many industries such as the automotive and aerospace industry. HVOF coated materials can be complex due to the excellent bond strength and thickness of the coating. HVOF coatings can be as thick as half an inch, resulting in a difficult to grind (DTG) material that needs an even harder material to ground it. Commercial abrasives, no longer becomes enough to grind these materials coated with HVOF. Instead specially engineered HVOF Grinding Wheels are needed to work with this material.
