Properties of flame-powder sprayed aluminum coatings reinforced with particles of carbonaceous materials

Main Article Content

Artur Czupryński


The article presents the results of research on tribological properties of aluminum coatings, reinforced with particles of carbon nanotubes Nanocyl NC 7000 in quantities of 0.5 wt.% and 1 wt.% as well as carburite (elemental carbon) in an amount of 0.5 wt.%, flame-powder sprayed on a non-alloy structural steel grade S235J0 according to EN 10027-1.The coating properties were assessed based on macro and microscopic metallographic examinations, chemical composition tests, microhardness measurements and abrasion and erosive wear resistance tests. The obtained results were compared with the results obtained for samples with coatings made of aluminum powder  EN AW 1000 series.
