High velocity oxygen fuel sprayed stainless steel coatings have been widely used in various industries to repair damaged components. However, its broad application is limited due to its comparatively low hardness and inferior tribological properties. In this work, electroless Ni-P/Ni-B duplex coating with a thickness of ≈ 40 μm was deposited on surfaces of HVOF-sprayed 420 martensitic stainless steel substrate, and its structural, corrosion and tribological properties were characterized. Experimental results showed that upper Ni-B coating deposited on the surface of first Ni-P layer by duplex treatment exhibited superior hardness, wear and corrosion resistances as compared to the HVOF-sprayed 420 martensitic stainless steel coating with a thickness of about 150 μm.
