WHAT IS COLD SPRAY?
The Cold Spray Process; Cold spray, Gas dynamic cold spray, supersonic particle deposition, is a high-energy solid-state coating and powder consolidation process. In Cold spray an high-pressure heated carrier gas, (nitrogen or helium) accelerates a metal powders through a supersonic nozzle. The powder forms a coating (surface engineering) or free-standing component (Additive Manufacturing).
Bonding mechanism: Cold spray bonding is a combination of mechanical interlocking and metallurgical bonding from re-crystallization at high strained particle interfaces.
Compared with conventional thermal spray processes, cold spray has advantages:
Cold Spray can create mixtures of metallic / nonmetallic materials to form a coating or free-standing structure.
Some Cold Spray Applications:
Cold spray Research, Production, integration, choose from one of our 3 models of high pressure cold spray
