In the current study a Cr3C2–Ni spray powder was produced by mechanically activated thermal synthesis. The following aspects were studied: (a) production and characteristics of spray powders, (b) spraying and characteristics of coatings by HVOF, and (c) abrasive wear resistance. A HVOF spray system Diamond Jet Hybrid 2700 (propane hybrid gun from Sulzer Metco) was used for deposition. Coating thickness was approximately 350–400 μm. The structure and composition of the coatings were determined by SEM and the phase composition by XRD methods. Coating surface hardness and microhardness in the cross-section were measured. Abrasive rubber-wheel wear (ARWW) and abrasive erosive wear (AEW) were tested. The wear resistance of the coatings produced from an experimental powder was comparable to that of a similar commercial one.
