Abstract

In this study, aluminum powders were deposited using two different cold spray processes which are high pressure cold spray process (HPCS) and low-pressure cold spray process (LPCS). The main objective is to investigate and compare the microstructure, mechanical and wear properties of aluminum coatings using HPCS and LPCS processes. The microstructure, hardness, wear and elemental composition were evaluated using Scanning Electron Microscope, Vickers Hardness test, pin-on disc wear test machine and Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, respectively. It was found that the aluminium coatings using LPCS process exhibited slightly better mechanical and wear properties compared to the aluminium coatings using HPCS process.
