The object of the present work is to study the spraying of poly-powders nickel bases containing Cr, Si, C and B elements addition with variable percentage of iron, deposited on a steel substrate by oxy fuel thermal spraying. The substrate surface was previously treated by Al–Ni bond coat and post–annealing at 650°C. The spraying powder and coating micro structure were investigated by combination of X-ray diffraction, electron microprobe and scanning electron microscope coupled to an analyzer energy dispersive x-ray. The adherence to substrate was determined by using shear test for adhesion. The result of this study was to investigate to compare potentials of HVOF sprayed NiCrBCSi and satellite 6 coating for a possible to replacement of hard chromium plating. A good adherence of coating NiCrBCSi (Fe) on steel substrate is explained by formation of large diffusion zone in interface after annealing and by the nature of the structure deposit duplexes.
