Chrome Carbide Coatings

Time to Read: 1m 14s

Chrome carbide coatings are a type of industrial coating. These coatings are usually applied via HVOF (High Velocity Oxygen Fuel) or plasma electric arc spray processes. Chrome carbide coatings are effective in operating temperatures as high as 1500°F (815°C). This material is proven to effectively resist wear caused by abrasion, fretting, particle erosion, and hard surfaces. Chrome carbide coatings provide a number of performance enhancing benefits, most notably high wear resistance in high temperature environments; in this capacity, it can be used as a substitute for tungsten carbide. When combined with a nickel/chrome binder chemistry, it exhibits exceptional heat and oxide resistance in corrosive or oxidizing environments, even at extremely high temperatures. Adding a nichrome alloy to the coatings matrix provides even greater corrosion resistance.


Chrome carbide is a ceramic compound that exists in several different chemistries. The most durable of these chemist
