MBI Coatings utilizes the most advanced technologies available for applying carbide coatings. Depending on the application, there are many carbide alloys available to consider. Tungsten carbide, for example, is best applied using our advanced “Impact Fusion” HVOF (High Velocity Oxygen Fuel) which produces coatings that are tough with virtually zero porosity.
An HVOF carbide coated surface has a uniform matte-like finish that is extremely hard and durable. Thicker coatings can be applied and finished by diamond grinding and polishing to produce a mirror-like finish. Other methods such as flame-spray/fuse coatings, arc spray, and plasma spray are also used for specific application requirements such as rougher finishes for gripping, impact resistance, thicker build-up, plasma-release type coatings and more.
This HVOF coating incorporates 5% chrome to add excellent corrosion resistance along with its great wear resistance. This added 5% chrome also allows this coating to have mirror-like finish when ground and polished.
This HVOF applied coating has elements of nickel, chrome and boron for extreme hardness and wear resistance. This coating offers near zero porosity and can serve as an excellent corrosion barrier.
This coating is applied by our high velocity arc spray method that allows us to increase the thickness of build-up without the fear of delamination and spalling. It is extremely hard; over 70 Rc, extremely effective on high abrasion wear applications.
This coating is considered an excellent choice for applications that require resistance to wear and corrosion combined. It is also considered as an excellent replacement for chrome plating.
This coating consists of tungsten carbide –cobalt alloy (87-13), it is applied by our HVOF process and considered to be extremely tough and effective on applications subjected to mechanical shock and impact.
