The effects of wear and corrosion can only be retarded, but not be stopped forever and wear parts must be replaced or resurfaced. It is the same for undersize parts due to manufacturing error.
The ability to apply coatings by thermal spraying with a broad spectrum of thickness, finish and composition requirements makes the different thermal spray processes ideal solutions to re-surface components, avoiding their costly replacement. Restoration is performed either with the same material as the base metal or with a more corrosion- and/or wear-resistant material.
However, it is better to choose coatings that can be machined. In a wide range of industrial applications, thermal coatings are used to renew components by restoring their specified dimensions and matching and sometimes improving their original performance.
Very often it is possible to design a coating that meets the functional requirements of the component, and moreover offers better resistance to corrosion, oxidation, and mechanical wear than the original product.
We, at Metal Coat started our journey way back in 1988 are one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of a vast array of Thermal Spray Equipment and Coating Systems.
