The development of new hardmetal coating applications such as fatigue-loaded parts, structural components and tools for metal forming is connected with improvement of their performance and reliability. For modelling purposes the knowledge of thermophysical, mechanical and other material data is required. However, this information is still missing today. In the present work the thermophysical data of a WC-17Co coating sprayed with a liquid-fuelled HVOF-process from a commercial agglomerated and sintered feedstock powder from room temperature up to 700 °C was determined as an example. The dependence of the heat conductivity on temperature was obtained through measurement of the coefficient of thermal expansion, the specific heat capacity and the thermal diffusivity. Heat conductivities ranging from 29.2 W/(mK) at 50°C to 35.4 W/(mK) at 700 °C were determined. All measurements were performed twice (as-sprayed and after the first thermal cycle) in order to take into account the structural and compositional changes. Extensive XRD and FESEM studies were performed in order to characterize the phase compositions and microstructures in the as-sprayed and heat-treated states. Bulk samples obtained by spark plasma sintering from the feedstock powder were studied for comparison.
