Surface Engineering

KPM works directly with end-users, OEMs and manufacturers to develop the most cost effective and surface enhancement solution. We start by assessing your specific wear/corrosion conditions and assist you in opti-mizing component life.

It is during the engineering step where KPM’s extensive experience makes a difference depending on the application, abrasion resistance and corrosion protection - KPM can choose from a wide variety of surface enhancement capabilities, such as:

  • • HVOF - High Velocity Oxygen Fuel - deposited coatings
  • • Thermal spray and metallurgical bonded coating
  • ZirmaX™ - zirconia based toughened ceramic
  • EnduramaX™ - reaction bonded silicone carbides
  • SuperFlex™ - impact resistant flexible ceramic
  • SuperScreen™ - long life screening device for ball rod and sag mills

Section - HVOF Overlay

KPM | Resolve, Repair, Renewal

HVOF Overlay - High Velocity Oxygen Fuel

High Velocity Oxygen Fuel Blended Coating is a thermal spray coating process used to improve / restore parts to extend equipment life and durability. The process creates a high velocity to propel particles onto a prepared surface. The HVOF Blended Coating process is a low temperature application process. We offer a diverse range of alloys to suit your specific application.

  • BENEFITS:
  • • Reduce costs
  • • High density
  • • High hardness
  • • Low porosity
  • • Excellent wear resistance
  • • Low coating stress
  • • Capable of handling large parts
  • • Thick coatings are possible
  • • Component can be recoated repeatedly
  • • Surface finish capability down to 4 RA
