Thermally Sprayed Materials
A Wide Range of Thermally Sprayed Materials are available
Thermally sprayed metal coatings are depositions of metal which has been melted immediately prior to projection onto the substrate. The metals used and the application systems used vary but most applications result in thin coatings applied to surfaces requiring improvement to their corrosion or abrasion resistance properties. Applications for thermally sprayed materials are many and varied and can be found in many industries today including the mining, refining, chemical and petro-chemical industries etc.
A wide range of products including Tungsten Carbide, Chrome, Stellite and other hard materials can be used. Applications include pump parts, valves, piping, shafts, impellors, industrial fans etc. Special materials that will handle corrosion and high temperature as well as erosion are also available.
Stainless Steel, Copper, Zinc & Aluminium are just a few of the materials that can be used. Applications include tanks, vessels and other structures. Thermally Sprayed metal coatings have been used for a number of years and exposure tests have proved them to be superior to conventional paint coatings. Aluminium has been found to be the most effective metal for protection of steel in offshore structures.
