Thermal spraying is a widespread coating process with various applications in many industry branches. To be able to spray successfully on the sensitive materials an in-situ temperature control is most beneficial. The objective of this paper is to find out the correlation between the mechanical properties of some coating-substrate variations and temperature history of the coating made by HVOF. The paper describes the processes involved in implementation of the thermographic measurement systems into the HVOF spray system to measure the temperature of the coating on aluminum and steel during spraying. It was observed that when spraying on aluminum, the temperature of the coating has a marked influence on the adhesion. Tests with a steel substrate show how the hardness of the WC-CoCr depends on the quenching speed of the coating during spraying. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
