While anti-corrosion applications are the most common use for metal spray, the technology is also frequently used in engineering applications to increase wear resistance in the life of components and also to reclaim crucial parts that have worn or have been damaged. The benefits of thermal spraying for metal repair and reclamation are many and varied. The major driving factor is one of cost. With many individual parts costing thousands of dollars, the ability to repair areas offers a major cost saving. Also, coatings of materials that have different properties than the base material can be used to provide localised increases in wear protection.
