Abstract : A spray coating technique is being developed to replace electroplating processes at Air Logistics Centers and thereby reduce hazardous wastes. A bench-scale spray system was used to coat low-carbon steel strips with three cobalt-chromium hardfacing alloys. The process shows promise to be a replacement for chromium electroplating. One-dimensional models incorporating the most fundamental aspects of molten metal nebulization and coating deposition provided physical insight on the process. jg
