What is HVOF coating?
HVOF is a thermal spray system utilizing the combustion of gases, such as Hydrogen or a liquid fuel such as kerosene. Fuel and oxygen mix and atomize within the combustion area under conditions that monitor the correct combustion mode and pressure.The process creates a very high velocity which is used to propel the particles at near supersonic speeds before impact onto the substrate. One of the basic rules of spraying is that high combustion pressure = high gas velocity, high particle velocity and resulting high coating quality.One of the key benefits
What is Plasma (APS) spraying?
The plasma spraying process involves the latent heat of ionized inert gas (Plasma) being used to create the heat source. The most common gas used to create the plasma is argon. This is referred to as the primary gas. (See What is Plasma). Argon flows between the electrode and nozzle. A high frequency or high voltage alternating electric arc is struck between the nozzle and the electrode, which ionizes the gas stream. By increasing the arc current, the arc thickens and increases the degree of ionization. This has the effect
What is thermal spraying?
Thermal spraying, also commonly known as metal spraying is a surface engineering / coating process where a wide range of metals and ceramics can be sprayed onto the surface of another material.
