High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF)
NanoSteel’s Super Hard Steel® (SHS® ) atomized powders for thermal spray are patented steel alloys designed for the high velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) application process.
When applied by the HVOF process, SHS® atomized powders form a metallic coating with a nano-scale microstructure which provides a unique combination of high hardness and toughness properties resulting in superior wear performance over competing chrome carbide, tungsten carbide and conventional steel powders.
The nano-scale microstructure results in very high mechanical bond strength across a range of substrate materials including steel and stainless steel. NanoSteel’s SHS® atomized powders are well suited for a wide range of industrial applications, including extreme high temperature service environments and applications requiring a very high surface finish.
SHS® atomized powders are available as conventional feedstock in standard cuts. The material chemistries have been optimized to provide a wide application window for easy use with standard shop equipment.
