Various metals such as aluminum, copper, zinc, steel, nickel, titanium, and niobium have been deposited on a wide range of substrate materials via cold spraying. This paper provides a detailed overview of the cold spray process and the coatings typically produced. It discusses the powders and gases used, the dynamics of gas-particle flow in spray nozzles, the effect of temperature and pressure, and the concept of critical velocity. It also presents examples of the properties and microstructures recently achieved in cold sprayed aluminum, zinc, NiCr, MCrAlY, and Cu-Al coatings. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
