Characteristics of Thermal Spray:
Definition of Thermal Spray: Thermal Spray can be defined as:
Group of processes where a material is heated (electric or combustion), atomized, and propelled unto a prepared substrate forming a coating.
What is Thermal Spray?
Thermal spraying is an industrial coating process. Thermal spray has a heat source (combustion or electric) and a coating material in a powder or wire form. The heat source melts the power/ wire into tiny droplets (atomized) and sprays the material onto surface to form a coating.
There are several processes:
Thermal sprayed coatings are typically applied to metal substrates, but can also be applied to some plastic substrates. Thermal sprayed coatings uniquely enhance and improve the performance of the component
