Innovators in the design and use of all Thermal Spray Applications
Thermal Spray can transform non-conductive plastics into conductive metals and basic metal substrates into electrical insulating ceramics.
Thermal sprayed coatings can be an effective alternative to several surface treatments and a environmentally-friendly alternative to plating.
Thermal Spray can be a great way to cut costs, when trying mass produce a product.
Thermal Spray helps increase product performance in the harshest of environments.
Thermal Spray is perfect for your prototypes stage of mass production stage.
Thermal Spray Process
Plasma spray is the most versatile of the thermal spray processes. Plasma Spray is featured in numerous applications and equipment in many different industries. It encompasses a variety of scientific disciplines ranging from plasma physics to aspects of chemistry, atomic and molecular physics, and material science. Vivid often uses Plasma Spray to produce Ceramic Coatings.
Twin Wire Arc
Twin Wire Arc Spray is a cost-effective means of Thermal Spray. It allows us to apply and build up advanced coating materials fast, inexpensively and at high efficiency rates, which translates into savings to our customers. Twin Wire Arc Spray is a type of Thermal Spray that normally only sprays pure metals and alloys.
The cold spray process imparts supersonic velocities to metal particles by placing them in a heated nitrogen or helium gas stream that is expanded through a converging–diverging nozzle. The powder feed is inserted at high pressure at the nozzle entrance. Thermal Spray is a term used lightly when discussing Cold Spray. Cold Spray units only have enough heat to slightly soften the material.
Wire flame is a type of Thermal Spray typically used in industries such as oil exploration, agriculture, wherever refurbishment of large equipment are required. The technological parameters, such as feedstock, flame spray gas composition, flow rate, and energy input, play a large role between the particles and the substrate.
