Thermal spraying of the nano-structured powders

The use of a nano-phased powder (specifically WC/Co) for thermal spray application produces a coating which has the potential for a dry sliding friction coefficient which is lower than that obtained when using conventional powders. Hence, the coatings have the potential for application in many adhesive sliding situations where reduced friction would be desirable.

The current status is that the findings will be exploited through commercial interaction with MBN and the first applications to be explored by Poeton will be engine cylinder bores and anti-scuffing coatings, where powders is blended with a solid lubricant.
