This paper investigates technologies of wear-resistant coatings and types of cored wire. Novel layers with low porosity and small particle size are produced using the arc spray process. FeCrB + Al and FeCr + Al + C cored wires with steel sheathing and a modified burner are used. The phase composition of the layers and their change due to friction are investigated using the XRD method. Wear tests are carried out with the block-on-ring configuration with different lubrication under a normal pressure of 5 MPa. The results showed good wear resistance of both layer systems. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
