HVOF thermal sprayed WC cermet coatings exhibit excellent abrasive and erosive wear resistance due to the presence of high volume fraction of WC particles bound by a tough cobalt or cobalt-chromium alloy binder. However, limited information is at present available on the corrosion response of these coatings in strong acidic environment. In the present study, the corrosion behaviour of the WC-CoCr coatings was investigated by electrochemical polarization technique in 0.1N hydrochloric (HCl) acid ...
