Definition of Thermal Spray: Thermal Spray is defined as:
Group of processes where a material is heated (electric or combustion), atomized, and propelled unto a prepared substrate forming a functional coating.
What is Thermal Spray?
Thermal Spray is a group of industrial coating processes. Thermal spray uses a heat source (combustion or electrical;) to heat up 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. See the diagram
There are several "Thermal Spray" processes:
Thermal sprayed coatings are typically sprayed onto metal substrates, but can also be applied to some plastic substrates. Thermal sprayed coatings uniquely enhance and improve the performance of the component
