Much like plating or welding, thermal spraying is a coating process.
There are many benefits of thermal spraying. The process protects against corrosion, fretting, abrasion, oxidation, and other wear. It minimizes downtime for your machines and extending the service life of your current components. Thermal Spraying is also used to fix mis-machined parts, or manufacturing errors. It is a much cheaper alternative than creating a new part.
Customized Thermal Spraying
Since a variety of materials can be used, flame spray rates can be varied. The coating thicknesses can be modified. Coatings can be customized for your specific needs and protection. With such variety, the properties of a component can be modified based on the properties of the coating itself. Learn more about the process.
Despite its name, thermal spraying is a relatively “cold process”. There is little risk of the substrate becoming thermally degraded. The material can be kept at a fairly low temperature. This helps prevent any damage or unnecessary stress on the component or part.
Focused and Accurate
It most cases, it is not necessary for the entire part to be coated. Critical parts can easily be masked to avoid thermal spraying. This prevents unnecessary areas for getting coated, and ensures that only the required areas are coated. Due to the consistent nature of the thermal spray process, it is easy to ensure uniform coatings on multiple parts. Even components with complex geometries can be coated consistently and with high quality. See the results in our before and after gallery.
Strong bonds withstand heavy mechanical loads. The bond between thermal spray coating and the substrate is able to withstand heavy mechanical loads in severe wear applications. This can be measured by tensile strength of the bonded materials. See all of the coating options.
