Thermal Spraying is a process where a wear-protective layer is sprayed directly onto the exposed surfaces. The wear layer can be made with various materials with unique properties. Therefore, the choice of coating will always depend on the requirements and specifications of the individual task.
No matter what material is used, the wear-resistant coating consists of microscopic particles sprayed directly onto the workpiece. The size of particles that are sprayed on also makes it possible to create extremely thin wear layers, just as they make it possible to make wear coatings on items that might otherwise be difficult to protect. In addition, thermal Spraying doesn’t require welding or pressure directly on the workpiece. That makes it a very gentle method, which provides even more application possibilities.
ABRATEK has many years of experience with thermal Spraying, and we have equipment in our shop for both high-speed and arc Spraying.
