Adhesion Strength Evaluation Methods in Thermally Sprayed Coatings

Authors: M.Jalali Azizpour, H.Mohammadi majd, Milad Jalali, H.Fasihi


The techniques for estimating the adhesive and cohesive strength in high velocity oxy fuel (HVOF) thermal spray coatings have been discussed and compared. The development trend and the last investigation have been studied. We will focus on benefits and limitations of these methods in different process and materials.

Keywords: Adhesion, Bonding strength, Cohesion, HVOF Thermal spray
