Our paper deals with the possibility of replacing galvanic chrome coatings with thermal spraying, specifically with the high-velocity oxy-fuel coating spraying (HVOF) method. The article provides an analysis of alternatives compensation, mutual comparison of thermal spraying methods, and the choice of the most appropriate method for replacing galvanic chrome plating. Increased pressure on health and the environment necessitates the replacement of conventional galvanic plating process solution with hexavalent chromium Cr6+ by using environmentally friendly technology.
