Abrasive Wear Behavior of Different Thermal Spray Coatings and Hard Chromium Electroplating on A286 Super Alloy


In cases of decorative and functional applications, chromium results in protection against wear and corrosion combined with chemical resistance and good lubricity. However, pressure to identify alternatives or to improve conventional chromium electroplating mechanical characteristics has increased in recent years, related to the reduction in the fatigue strength of the base material and to environmental requirements (1). In the present study plasma sprayed coatings (aluminum oxide, Co-28Mo-8Cr-2Si, tungsten carbide, chrome carbide) and electrolytic hard chrome coatings abrasive wear properties have been compared. The wear tests were conducted with a Taber abraser, at room temperature.
