This study investigates the effects of various reinforcement materials and solid lubricants on cold spray aluminum composite coatings. The wear resistance and friction coefficient of the coatings were very different with and without a reinforcement and solid lubricant. It was found that Al2O3 greatly improves wear properties, Mo results in better dispersion hardening, and MoS2 reduces the friction coefficient.
