Thermal Sprayed Industrial Coating - Engineers Edge
Thermal sprayed coatings have a wide range of industrial coating applications. This technique of applying a coating involves the spraying of molten powder or wire feedstock by use of a combustion or electric arc method onto the base material. Typical materials which are sprayed include most metal alloys and ceramics. Although any material can be thermal sprayed, the sprayed material may require careful temperature, pressure and application controls and equipment.
Thermal spray coating may be applied very thin up to thicknesses greater than 45 micro inches or more. Typical industries which apply thermal sprayed coating are aerospace, space and similar very high technology industries, commercial industries are applying thermal spray coatings as well.
