the Flame Spray process, the raw material in the form
of a single wire, cord or powder, is melted in an oxygen-fuel
gas flame. This molten material is atomised by a cone of compressed
air and propelled towards the workpiece.
The molten spray solidifies on the component surface to form
a dense, strongly adherent coating suitable for Corrosion
Protection or Component Reclamation. Sprayed coatings may
also be used to provide Wear Resistance, Electrical and Thermal
Conductivity or Insulation or Free Standing Shapes.
Major advantages of the Flame Spray Process are that the
coatings are available for almost instant use with no drying
or curing times and there is no risk of damaging the component.
