The High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) thermal spraying process can be used to produce dense hard coatings onto metallic surfaces with a good bond between the coating and Substrate. These coatings have been applied in many different industries to provide wear, erosion and corrosion protection. In this study, the NiCr coatings were deposited on the stainless steel substrates by HVOF technique. Microstructural characterization of the coatings was examined by using optical microscope. Corrosive wear behaviour of these coatings was evaluated through a pin-on-plate configuration, the wear tests were carried out at ambient temperature in 1% H2SO4 solutions. It has been found that NiCr coating is more resistance against to wear in acid condition rather than air condition.
