CastoJet® HVOF Powder 55580C

Chromium carbide - 20% nickel chromium

55580C is a spherical powder manufactured by agglomerating and sintering a formulation of 80% chromium carbide with 20% nickel-chromium matrix by weight. It has been developed for spraying with the CastoJet CJK5 system which is a High Pressure HVOF
using kerosene as liquid fuel. 55580C powder is also suitable for other HVOF systems or plasma spraying. 55580C sprayed coatings are hard with high bond strengths on a wide variety of metallic substrates. They resist exceptionally well to high temperature
abrasion, oxidation and solid particle erosion for service temperatures up to 870°C.
