HVOF

HVOF, High Velocity Oxy Fuel, is a new sophisticated spraying method that is based on the same principles as traditional metallize. Using this latest technology, we are now capable of accelerating alloy metal particles to the super sonic speed of Mach 13, creating coatings that have a bond strength ten times greater than any other coating in the world!  The particles sprayed with this new method are extraordinarily resistant to abrasion, corrosion, erosion, thermal and chemical deterioration.  

As you may know, traditional metallize creates a mesh coating of mechanically bonded particles that can be sealed to help resist wear, and/or machined to restore a diameter.  Our new HVOF system utilizes a liquid fuel, similar to that of a jet engine, to propel the particles at an ultra-high velocity.  These particles then bombard the part, resulting in "Impact Fusion".  Our new HVOF system offers coatings such as Tungsten-Carbide/Cobalt and Nickel-Chrome/Carbide that are literally forge-welded to your parts and surfaces making this technology a vast improvement over traditional combustion spraying and plasma methods.

What this means for you and your parts is that Wade Dynamics can offer you the very best, state-of-the-art defense available against any type of abrasion and corrosion.  This includes:

Sliding Wear
Erosion
Impingement
Fretting
Thermal Protection to 1600ºF

We have had great success over the past eight years with our HVOF system.  We have sprayed piston shafts, fan blades from highly abrasive environments, pump housings for chemical and sewage plants, cutting blades for plastics, mixer blades for cement and gravel companies and high temperature surfaces for furnaces.  Our HVOF coatings can also be used in bearing and seal applications, as well as keyway sections. Our HVOF coatings are not just for protection, they can be finished like any other coating.
