COLD SPRAY Metals / Cold Spray Powders
Cold spray equipment is successfully used to apply a variety of materials on an extremely broad range of metallic, ceramic, and plastic substrates. VRC Metal Systems Cold Spray equipment is used for depositing the materials below:
Copper Alloys, applied by cold spray equipment
CP Cu, Commercially Pure Copper on 1100 Copper substrate, Adhesion Strength over 10,000 psi [68 MPa], Hardness: 180 HV
DT 31, Adhesion > 10,000 psi [68 MPa], Tensile strength > 56,000 [386 MPa]
500A Cu, 500A Copper on Aluminium 7075, Adhesion Strength > 10,000 [68 MPa], Hardness: 190 HV
Other Metals applied by cold spray equipment
CP Ni, Commerically Pure Nickel on Aluminum, Adhesion Strength > 10,000 [68 MPa] 3-lug Shear Strength > 18 ksi [124 MPa] , Hardness: 210 HV
CP Ti, Commercially Pure Titanium on Ti 6Al-4V, Adhesion Strength > 10 ksi [68 MPa]
Tantalum, 40 ksi [275 MPa] while maintaining > 3% ductility are repeatable., Tantalum is dark (blue gray), dense, ductile, extremely hard, easily fabricated, and highly conductive of heat and electricity. The metal is renowned for its resistance to corrosion by acids; in fact, at temperatures below 150 °C tantalum is completely immune to attack by the normally aggressive aqua regia.
316 SS and Chrome Carbide, Adhesion strength > 10 ksi [68 MPa], High strengths > 100 ksi [689 MPa]
Ti + BAM, BAM is a unique and patented high hardness low-friction material developed by AMES and can be licensed from New Tech Ceramics.
