Abstract:

Vapor plating of tungsten coatings by hydrogen reduction of tungsten hexafluoride was adapted to flight model missile hardware. Very thin coatings performed well in plasma and rocket engine tests. Tendency of the deposit to crack was investigated in terms of the parameters of deposition temperature, gas velocity, and H2WF6 ratio. Author
