Use of higher velocity particles reduces need to perform roughening at high grit blast pressures resulting in less grit inclusion at interface improving adhesive strength.
Higher velocity particles lead to carbide coatings with negligible porosity.
Reduced porosity, oxide inclusions and brittleness provides improved finishing capabilities.
High deposition rate reduce heat input into the part.
Reduced residual stresses allow thicker, more ductile (tougher) carbide coatings to be applied.
