Our coatings have proven performance in power generation,
oil refining and drilling, steelworks, aerospace, automotive,
pulp & paper, printing, packaging, and many other industries.
The process works roughly as follows.
- Start with the original part - anything from tiny valves
to large galvanizing rolls. If it doesn't fit in our spray
booth (32'L x 12'W x 10'H), we can arrange work onsite.
- Choose the right coating for your application - tungsten
carbide for wear, Hasteloy for corrosion, etc. We
spray a wide range of metallic and composite materials onto
any metallic substrate, and onto certain ceramic and plastic
parts as well.
- Remove the old coating and prepare the surface for spraying.
We use grit blasting to make sure the coating adheres to the
- Spray on the new coating. We use the patented AcuKote HVAF
process that produces coatings with lower oxygen content,
higher density, and greater strength than conventional thermal
spray. (Learn more.)
- Finish the surface to the desired roughness. For example,
the roughness of a tungsten carbide coating is a hundred
microinches as sprayed - as if it were polished with an 80-grit
abrasive. However, this coating can be finished to an optical
mirror roughness of half a microinch.
With twenty years of
experience in thermal spray, we can either process your
specific coating, or help you choose the right coating for
your application, or at least refer you to the appropriate
vendor and surface treatment process. Give us a try - call
