This paper describes a new composite coating technology developed for hot dip galvanizing rolls used in automotive manufacturing. The multilayer coating consists of HVOF sprayed WC and electroless Ni-P plating. Coating surfaces and cross-sections are examined and adhesion strength, friction, and wear resistance are measured. In addition, changes in surface roughness are recorded on galvanizing rolls after three months of service.
