Most people just want to know that the part they purchase will work the way it’s supposed to. We get that, and we try to keep things as easy as possible for our customers.
If you’re looking for a little more coating expertise, you’ve come to the right place. On this page we delve into the wild and wonderful world of coatings. They are like little disguises for the components you order. Without coatings your parts would be plain, vulnerable, and let’s face it, a little boring. With a coating, your humble chunk of precisely shaped steel becomes smoother, stronger, resistant to wear and/or corrosion, harder… Like we said, it’s pretty cool. We love talking about this stuff, so if at any point you read through this and want to talk through your application, give us a call or submit a web inquiry and we’ll be happy to see if you we have a production solution for your next batch of parts.
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.
