Carbide Coatings

Feature Overview

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, and plasma-release type coatings.
