HVOF is the standard abbreviation for a recently new field process called High-Velocity Oxygen Fuel thermal spray service. Among the desirable properties of HVOF is high density, even to a negligible porosity, resulting from high spray-particle velocities produced by a hot combustion-driven, high-speed gas jet.
Although HVOF spray process represents a new coating technology, in principle, it amounts to a small rocket engine. HVOF is a supersonic process which delivers well over 7000 fps of velocity and can exceed bond strengths of 12,000 psi. It is an extremely versatile system that offers an unlimited range of possibilities to industries with extreme corrosion and wear environments such as chemical and refinery, agriculture, marine, hydroelectric plants, pulp and paper mills to name a few.
If you need to maximize the life of your present of future equipment, then HVOF may be the answer to your particular problems. HVOF coating is emerging as one of the most cost effective ways to combat wear and corrosion.
