Results are presented of a project analysing the relationship between the production parameters of plasma sprayed self-lubricating Cr2O3-CaF2 coatings and their structural, wear and lubricating properties. The production method consists of a preparation step where a powder blend of the matrix material (Cr203) and solid lubricant (CaF2) is agglomerated, followed by atmospheric plasma spraying (APS) of the agglomerates. Selection of the most appropriate agglomeration and plasma spray parameters as well as the microstructure of the coatings will be discussed.
