Metallisation Launches New Laser Cladding System
application Metallisation Launches New Laser Cladding System

Metallisation has launched a new laser cladding system, MET-CLAD, which has further enhanced Metallisation’s diverse range of surface coating equipment. Laser cladding, a process that falls into the range of hard- facing solutions, can be used to increase corrosion resistance, wear resistance or impact performance of metallic components, using a method of applying a fully […]

Coating: The laser cladding process utilises a precisely focused high power laser beam to create a tightly controlled weld pool into which a metallic powder is applied.

application Introduction to Thermal Spray and Engineering Applications

What is Thermal Spraying?   Thermal spraying is a technology which improves or restores the surface of a solid material. The process can be used to apply coatings to a wide range of materials and components, to provide resistance to: Wear, erosion, cavitation, corrosion, abrasion or heat. Thermal spraying is also used to provide electrical […]

application Ten Diverse Applications For Metal Spraying

Thermal spraying, also commonly known as metal spraying, is a coating process where a wide range of metals or ceramics can be sprayed onto the surface of another material. There are untold uses for this – here’s 10 applications for starters… 1. Wind Turbines Atmospheric corrosion causes damage to wind turbines. It’s for this reason […]

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 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 Protection of Iron and steel at Elevated Temperatures

 INTRODUCTION  Unprotected iron and steel surfaces oxidise and corrode rapidly at elevated temperatures in the presence of industrial atmospheres, hot gases and condensation products. Experience within the Metallisation Group has shown that nickel-chromium alloys and/or aluminium coatings give protection and increase the life expectancy of steelwork up to temperatures as high as 1200°C. Because oxidation rates […]

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 Sealing Sprayed Coatings

Porosity inherent in ‘as-sprayed’ coatings will allow the ingress of fluids which may give rise to:- • Corrosion of the coating or the base material • Contamination of the coating or of products handled by the coated articles • Pressure loss in hydraulic systems due to seepage beneath seals • Premature coating failure due to […]

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 […]
