HVOF cermet layers are increasingly viewed as an alternative to galvanic hard chrome layers for applications with high demands on wear and corrosion protection. The WC-Co-Cr layer is one of them. The WC-Co-Cr layers were produced with different HVOF systems: Jet-Kote, Diamond Jet, and JP5000. With all three systems, dense and well-adhering layers could be produced. This article considers HVOF sprayed WC-10Co- 4Cr as a generic coating type for replacing hard chrome plating. The friction, wear, adhesion, and corrosion performance of the HVOF WC-10Co-4Cr coatings are compared against the performance of a commercial hard chrome coating system. The article also evaluates effect on the coating adhesion of corrosion through the coating and penetrating along the interface at the coating edge. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
