The poblems of metal-titanium carbide coatings processing by air, low pressure and underwater plasma as well as high velocity oxygen fuel spraying are under consideration. Among the different methods of metal-TiC powders production, like mixing of carbides with scale structure metals, agglomeration with binders, a matter of special interest is the high temperature synthesis of TiC in presence of metallic alloy. The characteristic features of these materials include the carbide phases forming, their bonding with the alloy and reactions during spraying, grain size and their distribution, alloy behavior during synthesis and spraying. Finally, the abrasive wear and erosion resistance of Al-Si/TiC, Fe-Cr/TiC and Ni-Cr/TiC coatings is analyzed.
