Repair & Dimensional Restoration

The equipment and parts in every industry are subjected to abrasive wear and/or corrosive and erosive wear.
The affected components can usually be repaired applying a thermal spray coating to restore the part to original dimension.


  • The affected components can usually be repaired for less than half the cost of a new part.
  • Additionally, coating repairs can be completed in a matter of days which reduces downtime when compared to waiting weeks or months for replacement parts.
  • If required, the parts can be restored using the same material as the original substrate material.
  • Parts can be restored using a different coating material that provides significantly improved operational performance. In many cases
  • The thermal spray repaired component will have a longer service life than either a component enhanced with the same material as the original substrate or a "new" replacement component.
  • Coating materials can be selected that can address multiple issues at the same time such as abrasive wear and corrosion resistance or abrasive wear and high operative temperature.
  • Components can be restored to "larger" than their original dimension.
  • Components can be restored to the same original dimension but with different surface finishes to enable enhanced performance.
  • Components that cannot be welded on or repaired using any other repair technology can be restored to original at a fraction of the cost to replace.
  • No heat distortion makes this process a good alternative to welding
    • Example: repairing a worn journal on a carbon steel shaft using an HVOF applied tungsten carbide. The newly coated area will have significantly higher wear resistance than the original shaft thereby increasing the service life of the component.

Is the most common thermal spray repair that we perform is the restoration of worn, damaged, or mis-machined parts. Decades of experience with these processes led to the development of coatings for repair and dimensional restoration.

TSS is proud to have extensive industry experience and competent technicians to perform repair and dimensional restoration services with absolute precision.
