Technology
   Thermal Spray Technology       
   Your choices are...         
   Cold Spray       Cold spray processes use a stream of compressed gas flowing at ultrasonic velocities to propel and impact particles on a substrate. The impact causes plastic welding and cold micro welding of the particles to the surface. This process is akin to explosive welding on a micro scale. 
   Arc Spray (Electric Wire Arc)       Electric arc thermal spray processes use an electric arc heat source to melt the consumable coating material. An electric arc is struck between consumable wires that are fed continuously into the system. Compressed air or gas is applied behind the arc to atomize the melted consumable. 
   Flame Spray - Powder       Powder flame spray processes feed a consumable powder into a gun where a flame melts and atomizes the particles. The droplets are propelled toward a grit-blasted surface, where they strike and solidify to form a coating. 
   Flame Spray - Rod  / Rokide®       Rod flame spray processes feed a consumable ceramic or metal rod into a gun where a flame melts and atomizes the rod. The droplets are propelled toward a grit-blasted surface, where they strike and solidify to form a coating. Rokide® (Saint-Gobain Abrasives, Inc., Norton Company) is a proprietary rod flame spray process. 
   Flame Spray - Wire       Arc flame spray processes use an oxy-fuel combustion heat source to melt the consumable wire material and propel the droplet toward the grit-blasted surface. The droplets hit and solidify on the surface. 
   High Velocity Oxy Fuel (HVOF)       High velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) thermal spray processes use a combusted gas flowing at hypersonic velocities to melt and propel particles to a substrate. Shock diamonds are usually visible in the exiting combustion stream. The combustion heat partially melts or softens the particles. The impact of the particles on the substrate completes the melting or bonding process by converting the kinetic energy into heat. HVOF systems typically use an axial feed. Axial feed systems inject the powder or coating media into the center of the stream, which can help eliminate the formation of unmelted particles in the coating. 
   Laser Cladding       Laser cladding directs a laser beam at a surface to form a molten pool. Powder or wire is then injected into the beam and melt pool. The process forms an integral metallurgical bond between the deposit and substrate with minimal and controlled heat input. The controlled heat input results in a clad layer with a smaller heat-affected zone than with other processes. 
   Plasma Spray       Plasma spray processes feed a consumable powder into a gun where plasma melts and atomizes the particles. The droplets are propelled toward a grit-blasted surface, where they strike and solidify to form a coating. 
   Plasma Transfer Arc (PTA)       Plasma transfer arc (PTA) is a welding process where an arc formed between internal electrodes in a gun generates plasma. Then the arc is transferred between the gun and the workpiece. Coating consumables or powders are fed into the weld pool, where an overlay of cladding, hardfacing, or hardface coating is formed. 
   RF / Induction Plasma        Radio frequency (RF) or induction plasma systems use an electrical field to induce a current in and then sustain a plasma heat source. Because electrodes for transferring power to the plasma are not used, a potential source of contamination is eliminated. 
   Shrouded Plasma Spray       Shrouded plasma or arc spray processes use of a gun with a surrounding nozzle to create a ring of inert gas around the stream of heated particles. This theoretically shields the spray from oxidation. 
   Vacuum Plasma Spray (VPS)       Vacuum plasma spray (VPS) is a plasma spraying process in a controlled-atmosphere chamber where the atmosphere is typically a vacuum or a low-pressure inert gas. The clean atmosphere in the chamber eliminates the possibility of air-based contamination from oxide or nitride inclusions. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary thermal spray processes or thermal spraying technologies.

   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Web (Coil / Wire)?       Web and roll coaters are used for the rapid application of controlled layers of paint, protective films, adhesives and other types of coatings onto the surface of paper, plastic film, textiles, non-wovens, coil stock, metal foils and other sheet materials. Often, the coating is metered onto a roll and then transferred onto the moving web. Other web coating technologies include extrusion or slot die coaters, spray coaters and curtain coaters. This equipment is designed for the coating of narrow web reel-to-reel products such as wire, lead frames, connectors, mechanical cable, wire rope, magnet wire, communication cable, wire and decorative wire, strip and fiber roving.
