Thermal Spay Coating
Thermal spraying coating is the processes in which melted (or heated) materials are sprayed onto a surface.
Thermal spraying can provide thick coatings (thickness range is 20μm to several mm, depending on the process and feedstock), over a large area at high deposition rate as compared to other coating processes such as electroplating, physical & chemical vapor. They are fed in powder or wire form, heated to a molten or semimolten state and accelerated towards substrates in the form of micrometer-size particles.
Coating quality is usually assessed by measuring its porosity, oxide content, macro and micro-hardness, bond strength and surface roughness. Generally, the coating quality increases with increasing particle velocities.
The following coating process are all thermal spray coating.
Wire arc spraying
High velocity oxy-fuel coating spraying (HVOF)
Coating materials are available for thermal spraying include metals, alloys, ceramics, plastics and composites.
