In this study, austenitic stainless steel (316L) coatings were formed using both Wire Flame Spray Forming (WSF) and High Velocity Oxy Fuel (HVOF) deposition processes after a NiCr bond layer was deposited on low carbon steel substrate. The coatings were characterized by light optical microscope (LOM) and microhardness measurements. Corrosion resistance of 316L austenitic stainless steel coatings applied onto low carbon steel via WSF and HVOF spray processes was analyzed by using the potentiodynamic polarization scanning (PDS) technique. The wear behaviour of the coatings against Al2O3 ball was investigated with a reciprocating tester under dry friction conditions. It was found that the HVOF sprayed coating showed higher hardness and better wear resistance than the WSF coating. However, the overall corrosion resistance of the HVOF deposited coating was inferior to that of the WSF coating.
