Residual stresses arising during high-velocity oxyfuel (HVOF) spraying usually impose a limit on coating thickness. In this work, dry-ice blasting is used in combination with HVOF spraying to produce thick WC-Co coatings characterized by compact microstructure, crystal refinement, high hardness, and excellent sliding wear resistance.
