Quick Introduction To Coatings
Thermal spray heats up for better components. Thermal spray processes, which use a spray gun to deposit finely divided molten materials onto a substrate, are among the most effective coating technologies that can be used to protect and improve the performance of critical parts. They are also at the forefront of current research and development efforts involving the use of nanostructured coatings to achieve greater resistance to wear and corrosion.
Various materials, including various metals and alloys, carbides, polymers, ceramics, cermets and composites, can be thermally sprayed onto a substrate to protect critical components and enhance their performance.
Sprayed coatings are widely used in OEM design and production, to rebuild worn machine parts, to salvage mis-machined parts or to remanufacture used equipment. Wherever parts wear or corrode, there is a potential coating application.
In OEM applications, sprayed coatings offer a rewarding combination of features by helping designers:
When used to rebuild worn machine parts, sprayed coatings save time and money, while increasing service life:
When used for salvage of mis-machined parts or undersized castings:
