Plasma and Thermal Spraying

Both plasma and thermal spraying use heat during the spray process to melt metal, ceramic wires and powders to form a coating.

Plasma and thermal sprayed hard metals and ceramic coatings such as Tungsten Carbide, Chrome Oxide, Zirconia, Alumina and abradables are used extensively in the aerospace and motorsport industry to coat components.  These coatings provide thermal barriers, electrical insulation, abradable and high wear resistance coatings, this protection enables components to operate for longer in extreme conditions up to 1500ºC.
