© 2020 Cr2O3 (chromia) coatings have been widely used in wear and corrosion resistant applications thanks to their good tribomechanical properties, and graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) have been employed as nanofillers to further improve these properties. In this work, we propose a process to deposit chromia/GNPs composite coatings on stainless steel substrates using Suspension High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (S-HVOF) thermal spray. The coating showed good microhardness, with successful incorporation of GNPs showing no or minor spray-induced degradation. Compared to a chromia-only coating, the tribological performance improved: both coating and alumina counterbody specific wear rates lowered by 20 and 70% respectively and coefficient of friction decreased by 15%. This study shows a non-expensive and simple method to incorporate GNPs to improve material performance in large scale.
