Stellite 6 powder (CoCrSiW) was deposited using flame spray (FS) and high velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) techniques on steel substrates. The microstructure of stellite coatings produced with these deposition techniques displayed a rather similar morphology consisting of cobalt-rich dendrites surrounded by hard (Cr3C7) carbide particles. The stellite (both FS and HVOF) coating was found to reduce the tensile strength of the steel. The failure of the coated steel specimens initiated by cracking on the coating surface, transverse propagation of the cracks towards the coating - substrate interface and diversion along the interface leading to local delamination and breakage. During the bend tests cracks developed along the coating and the main failure in the coating occurred due to the tensile-shear deformation, particularly in the coating-substrate material interface. The coating thickness does not appear to affect the bending strength. During bending the number of surface cracks per unit length decreased with increasing coating thickness. Stereoscopic analysis showed that the thicker the coating the deeper the surface cracks. When the critical stress for crack propagation reached defect sites at the substratecoating interface, the entire coating failed and peeled off from the substrate.
