Flash-Carbide is hard (over 1400 HV300) with a High-Velocity Air-Fuel (HVAF) spray of a dense coating of WC-10Co-4Cr composite material, applied to metallic parts and structures, improving their surface resistance to severe wear and tear.
Ergo, Flash-Carbide surfaces do not require dimensional grinding as a simple polishing achieves the final surface roughness.
When coating cylindrical parts, such as hydraulic rods, pump plungers and shafts, the sprayed-and-finished Flash-Carbide cost drops below 4 INR per sq. cm (under 3000 INR per sq. foot), which is 10 to 20 times lower than a typical HVOF carbide coating.
Flash-Carbide: Survives 1000-hr salt spray corrosion test at as-sprayed thickness as low as 15 microns.
Flash-Carbide: Wear resistance exceeds electroplated chrome by 20+ fold
