Applications

The following pages show a small selection of the many and varied metal spraying applications. You can filter the applications on the left hand side or search for keywords that may relate to your application, e.g. LPG or Steel. Further applications can be seen in the Blog and Press section as well as the Video section.

application Protecting Ships and Trawlers from Corrosion

Metal or thermal spraying is a technology, which protects or extends the life of a wide variety of structures in the most hostile environments and in situations where coatings are vital for safety and performance. Thermal spraying is carried out in a wide range of anti- corrosion or engineering markets. Typical applications include the spraying […]

application An introduction to metal spray for corrosion protection

Metal or thermal spraying is a technology, which protects and greatly extends the life of a wide variety of products in the most hostile environments and in situations where coatings are vital for longevity. The variety of metallised coatings is vast but can be broken down into two main categories. These include finishing coatings, such […]

application Metallisation Protecting Film Industry Sets

For the first time in its 87 year history, Metallisation equipment has been used to protect film industry sets from damage during filming. The polystyrene props were first cut to shape and then metal sprayed with zinc and steel to strengthen them and make them less prone to dents during movement around the set. Metallisation […]

application HVOF Alternatives to Hard Chrome Plating

Introduction to HVOF Alternatives to Hard Chrome Plating Chrome plating has been accepted and used for many years to provide hard wearing surfaces, however; American environmental legislation as forced the closure of many, many US plating contractors. To continue legal operations, those US contractors that have wished to remain in business have had to make […]

application Seam Spraying of Pre-coated E.R.W Tube

INTRODUCTION    Tube is produced on a tube forming mill by Electrical Resistance Welding of the longitudinal seam. By using pre-coated steel strip, tube with enhanced corrosion resistance can be produced. Pre-coated steel strip is available with zinc coating (galvanised), aluminium coating (aluminised) or Zn/Al Alloy Coating (various trade names apply – Galvalume, Zincalume, Aluzinc, […]

application Zinc spraying of ductile iron pipes

Introduction Over the last 40 years in Europe, the ductile iron pipe has progressively replaced the grey iron pipe. The manufacturers of ductile iron pipe world-wide are now looking to give their customers a 50 year guaranteed life on their pipes. One of the main factors which will determine the life of ductile iron pipe […]

application Comparison of metal spraying with painting

Painting is a widely used method of protecting steelwork (and other materials) from corrosion. Most paints are organic (polymer) bases with added metal particles, corrosion inhibiting compounds or inert filler materials. They may be applied by dipping, brushing or spraying to suitably prepared (grit blasted) surfaces. Protective paint systems are multi-layer comprising a priming coat, […]

application Comparison of metal spraying with electro plating

The most common method is deposition from aqueous solutions, many of which are toxic. During electro plating, water decomposes and hydrogen is deposited at the surface being plated. This will cause embrittlement of high strength steels unless they are heat treated immediately after plating. This is only partially effective in reversing the damage. Electro deposition […]

application Comparison of metal spraying with galvanising

Galvanising is a well established process for applying a corrosion protection layer of zinc to steel. Treated steelwork is immersed briefly in molten zinc and the coating builds up very quickly. Galvanised layers are usually of even thickness, dense and metallurgically bonded to the steel. Thickness is typically 0.002 – 0.006 in (50 – 150μ). […]
