Although high-velocity oxyfuel (HVOF) spray coating is a relatively new thermal spraying process, interest is growing rapidly along with the pace of development in areas such as torch design, powder quality, and modelling. The gases used in HVOF spraying are also important because they directly influence the state of the particle striking the substrate. This presentation reviews the HVOF combustion process with an emphasis on the gases used and their influence on coating quality.
