The following test report compares several different Tungsten Carbide (WC) HVOF/HVAF sprayed coatings from different coating vendors to determine:
- Vickers micro-hardness
- Erosion rate of the coating under a slurry jet testing environment
- Micro-structure of the coating under a SEM
Below are the results of a Schlumberger competitive coating evaluation (extracted from the Schlumberger Report) conducted in 2010. Schlumberger is very selective with their choice of suppliers, so we were competing with the best-of-the-breed HVOF and Detonation coatings.
The HVAF and HVOF coatings we are producing today are superior to the one evaluated in this test.
