: Our firm has 6 year experience with thermal spray. Last year we are working with HVOF TAFA JP 5000 ( burner ST ). We can try coating by TiC. Could You write us the suitable applications and properties of such surface ?
: Thank You

Hi Vladimir

Titanium carbide can only be effectively applied as an HVOF coating when combined with a binder or matrix material as in tungsten carbide/cobalt.

I have not come across any commercial TiC based HVOF powders. There were some powders based on TiC/Ni (or Co) and WTiC/Ni but I don't think they were in common use. I have not had the opportunity to evaluate these coatings yet, but would expect applications and properties to be roughly similar to the tungsten carbide and chromium carbide type coatings.

These references may be useful:
