Surface treatments to metal components on site

Thermal spray coating involves heating material (in powder or wire form) until it is molten or semi-molten. Then we propel it with gas or air to deposit a layer on a receiving component. Because we can repeat this many times, we can build several layers to precise specifications.

Common applications for thermal spraying and surface treatments include these:

  • Repair & Reconditioning
  • Anti-corrosion coatings
  • Heat shielding
  • Erosion prevention
  • Insulation

Depending on your requirements, our highly-trained specialists will work in the workshop or on site – spraying materials such as these anywhere in the world:

  • Steel
  • Tungsten carbide
  • Chrome carbide
  • Ceramics
  • Plastic composite

You can count on us for the highest quality thermal spraying and consistently high-specification results on all types of components with a wide range of materials. These may be single elements, but are more usually alloys or composites with unique physical properties that are only achievable with thermal spraying using one of these techniques:

  • High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF)
  • Flame spraying
  • Arc spraying
  • Plasma spraying

Cost-effective rotary-steriliser shaft recovery kept baked bean production going for a leading European bean processor. On the recommendation of another customer, thermal spraying and precise orbital turning, enabled us to recover a shaft for the Belgian food producer OEM at a fraction of the machinery replacement costs and the time required for conventional shaft replacement.
