The Chrome Carbide Coating Processes

Hannecard - ASB applies chrome carbide coatings by utilizing either one of our HVOF processes or our plasma electric arc process. We decide on which process to use based on part dimension, configuration, and required finishing. These commercially available systems give versatility to defined coating properties based on the operating parameters of each of these systems.

Chrome Carbide Applications

Chrome carbide coatings are notable for several uses; one of its most significant benefits is its wear resistance in higher temperature environments. Chrome carbide can be an excellent choice as an alternative to tungsten carbide, depending on operating conditions. While chrome carbide has less wear resistance than tungsten carbide, chrome carbide coatings along with a nickel/chrome binder chemistry has heat resistance and oxide resistance characteristics at higher temperatures and under corrosive or oxidizing conditions.

The properties of chrome carbide coatings can be further enhanced when the metal alloy matrix is made from nichrome alloy, which has high corrosion resistance. Coatings with chrome carbide are appropriate for applications ranging from 1,000F to 1,500F or 540 C to 815C approximately. We recommend chrome carbide coatings for applications that require resistance for wear by abrasion, hard surfaces, fretting, and particle erosion.

Carbide Coatings for High Demand Applications

In many applications where chrome has added proven wear life, the selection of carbide applied by the HVOF process may provide an alternate in demanding applications. Cost vs. wear life economies will provide possible alternates to a standard electrolytic chrome alternative.

Powder morphology and thermal spray process parameters offer a range of surface profiles. Rough to smooth-as-sprayed surfaces can offer grip and a possible increase of friction coefficient (based on mating material hardness) with the long wearing carbide surface.

Chrome Carbide Surfacing Benefits & Uses

Coatings of chrome carbide are recommended for resistance to wear by abrasion, fretting, cavitation, and particle erosion in high-temperature applications.

Chrome carbide surfacing resists oxide pick-up in high-temperature atmospheres for steel production. This reduces product damage on components that directly contact steel strips and other shapes during high-temperature annealing. Turbine components with critical initial testing and proven results under extended and demanding operations make the wear resistance of chrome carbide coatings an ideal solution. Chrome carbide also provides significant benefits in applications where the part would be exposed to environments that move solid particles in erosive gasses by coating the ductwork and fan surfaces.

Chrome Carbide Chemistries

Hannecard - ASB limits our number of material suppliers to focus on material quality and consistent particle range. This allows us to optimize the deposit efficiency for our chrome carbide coatings, whether using plasma electric arc or HVOF processes, and with either gaseous or liquid combustion fuel. Material morphology based on production processes produces different results.

Hannecard - ASB Industries will ask you questions based on your application and choose both the process and material to provide an optimized surface. Available material morphology includes a nickel/chrome binder matrix manufactured by sintering and crushed, blended, clad, agglomerated, and densified in a spheroidal shape.
