Thermal spraying

Thermal spraying is a coating process in which a coating material in wire or powder form is melted or fused by applying thermal energy and accelerated by a gas flow in the direction of a component surface to be coated. In contrast to welding, the base material is not melted. Adhesion is mainly achieved by mechanical interlocking in superposition with induced shrinkage stresses. Residual stresses and metallurgical interactions as well as diffusion processes and van der Waals forces also influence the layer adhesion.
The substrate must be roughened in a previous work step so that a form fit can occur between the spray particles and the substrate. The particles then cling to the generated roughness peaks. Roughening is usually done by sandblasting, but can also be done by high-pressure water jets or mechanically (turning, milling, grinding).

Thermal spray is a breakthrough technology that is redefining surface coating and refurbishment processes in various sectors. A material is heated at high temperature, melted and sprayed onto a surface. There it solidifies and creates a versatile coating with properties such as wear and corrosion resistance as well as thermal insulation.

This innovative method allows various materials to be applied to a target surface. The result is a robust, protective layer that increases the performance and service life of components. The heat source in thermal spraying melts or softens the coating material, which is then applied via a spray gun.

The heat source can be a flame, an electric arc or a plasma jet, depending on the specific spraying process. As soon as the molten or partially molten particles reach the surface, they harden and form a strongly adhesive protective layer.

Thermal spraying is very flexible and can work with different materials, for example metals, ceramics or plastics. These materials can be tailored to meet specific requirements such as corrosion resistance, wear resistance, thermal insulation, electrical conductivity or even aesthetic improvements.

Thanks to the wide range of coating materials, thermal spraying is suitable for many applications. It is used in industries such as aerospace, automotive, energy and manufacturing.

One of the main advantages of thermal spraying is the ability to create coatings of exceptional thickness. This ability allows for the restoration of worn or damaged components by building up the coating to its original dimensions. In addition, customized coatings can be produced with specific thicknesses that offer enhanced protection and performance characteristics.

Thermal spray coatings are known for their exceptional bond strength and durability. The rapid impact of molten particles ensures strong mechanical adhesion. As a result, the coatings are extremely temperature and environmentally resistant and can withstand demanding conditions. These coatings effectively protect against wear, corrosion and erosion, and increase the service life of components.

Thermal spraying is flexible and offers various methods such as flame spraying, arc spraying, plasma spraying and HVOF (high velocity oxygen fuel spraying).

Each method has its advantages. The choice depends on things like the material of the coating, the type of substrate, the thickness of the coating and the desired result.

This versatility allows precise control of the coating process and ensures optimal results for a wide range of applications.

In addition, thermally sprayed coatings can be post-treated or finished to further improve their properties. Additional treatments such as grinding, polishing or milling can be used for specific surfaces, dimensional accuracy or appearance.

The variety of customization and post-treatment options makes thermal coatings extremely flexible for individual application needs.
