The resistance of high velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) sprayed TiC-NiMo and Cr3C2-Ni cermet particles reinforced NiCrSiB self-fluxing alloy coatings to high temperature erosion wear was studied. Microstructure of the coatings was examined by SEM, phase composition was determined by XRD. A four-channel centrifugal particle accelerator was applied to study the high temperature erosion wear of the coatings. The angles of impingement were 30º and 90º, initial particle velocity was 50 m/s, the average temperature of the test – 650 ºC. Volume wear of the coatings was calculated and compared to the respective values of the reference materials. Wear mechanisms were studied by SEM. HVOF sprayed coatings exhibited lower wear, than WC-15Co hardmetal and steel HARDOX 400, but higher wear than steel AISI 304. TiC-NiMo particles reinforced self-fluxing alloy coating demonstrated virtually the same wear resistance, as the Cr3C2-Ni particles reinforced self-fluxing alloy coating, at 30º and the better wear resistance at 90º.
