Improved Mechanical Properties by Nanoreinforced Ceramic Composite HVOF Coatings
Special nanoreinforced ceramic composite coatings were produced. Dense nanostructured alumina and chromia coatings alloyed with various nanofraction elements such as Ni, NiO, ZrO2 and SiC were manufactured by HV2000 HVOF spraying. As a result coatings with nearly 100% improvements relative fracture toughness, were produced.
