In order to provide complete service to our customers, plasma spray has been added to our thermal spray capabilities. Our high velocity spray equipment was designed to be a notch above all other plasma spray coating systems.
In contrast to HVOF, these coating particles have lower kinetic energy, but the extremely high temperature of the plasma melts or significantly softens even ceramics to provide a well bonded continuous surface.
Typical materials sprayed by the plasma system include MCrAlY, bronze, nickel aluminide, zirconia and magnesia-zirconia. With our extension gun, we are able to spray inside confined spaces to a distance of 36". Thermal barriers are commonly done by this method.
Our redesigned equipment, combined with our plasma acceleration module causing particles to increase in speed, provides superb results nearly matching HVOF-type coating density.
