WC-Co powders with nano-sized WC were deposited by dynamic powder deposition process. Microstructural characterization and phase analysis of feedstock powders with different compositions and as-deposited coatings with various substrates were carried out by SEM and XRD. The results show that there is no detrimental phase transformation and/or decarburization of WC by dynamic powder deposition. It is also observed that nano-sized WC in the feedstock powder is maintained in the deposited coatings. It is demonstrated that it is possible to fabricate the nano-structured WC-Co coatings with low porosity and very high hardness by dynamic powder deposition.
