High-Velocity Oxygen Fuel - HVOF Advantages

Chrome Carbide
Chrome Carbide is a rigid material applied without leaving any pores in the finished material; this spray is becoming more popular as a replacement for chrome plating. The drawback with this material is that you cannot apply a too-thick coat because it becomes too brittle and cracks when finished.

Nickel Chrome Boron
The Nickel Chrome Boron material is perfect for hardness, wear, and corrosion resistance. It is primarily used on parts constantly submerged in water or an environment exposed to a lot of moisture but still needs the wear protection you would get with a typical Hard Chrome coating.

Aluminum Silicon
The Aluminum Silicon material is incredibly soft. Although it was applied using the HVOF method, it is still soft enough to be machined.

Tungsten Carbide
Tungsten Carbide is a rigid, more complex material than chrome carbide. It doesn't have the same corrosion resistance as chrome, but it is considered the workhorse of all materials for wear resistance.

Metallizing & HVOF:
We can spray parts up to 200" LG and 48" DIA.

Turnaround Times:
We can generally turn around most parts within 3-4 Days.
