The HVOF forming is a process that permits to obtain wear resistant self-standing forms. The self-supporting forms that are obtained through the reshaping process by means of thermal spraying have two free surfaces that do not necessarily have the same structure or the same properties. This paper investigates the mechanical properties of the obtained in relation to the structure. It compares the structure-property relationship of the internal and external surfaces. The results show the anisotropic behavior of the internal and external free surfaces and their difference to the cross section. The structure of the system is characterized in terms of its nature, phase distribution, composition, and porosity. For the mechanical properties, the paper examines the microhardness and the modulus of elasticity of the material. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
