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.

Check out the new and improved state of the art Abbott Machine Company precision grind and rebuild facility. Updated in 2015 to better further service future generations in the metal cutting and grinding industries.
