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 HVOF Engineering Applications

High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) coatings HVOF is a high energy thermal spray process which produces dense, strong coatings of cermets and metals which give excellent performance in demanding, aggressive, wear and corrosive environments. HVOF coatings are an important part of advanced surface engineering which enable us to salvage and improve components. This enables machinery […]

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 Backing nickel electroforms

INTRODUCTION  Nickel electroforms are extensively used as tools for injection moulded plastics. Whilst they give excellent service, their production is slow and costly. In some cases, tool distortion may be caused by the high residual plating stresses. For these reasons, the Metallisation spraying processes have been adopted to reinforce thin electroformed shells to produce tools […]

application Manufacture of Sprayed Metal Moulds

INTRODUCTION  The Metallisation Metal Spraying Process is in increasing use today for the manufacture of low cost moulds and tools for the plastics foundry and other industries. In this process, metal in the form of a molten spray, is deposited on to a suitable pattern; the spray solidifies immediately on the surface to produce a […]

application Plasma reinforced coating system for cookware

Introduction to Plasma Sprayed Ceramic Coating The application of Plasma sprayed ceramic 99216 as a reinforced coating has been proven to increases the working life of many types of cookware. Even above that achieved by Arcsprayed Stainless Steel (LE-WR-002). By producing a thin Plasma sprayed layer the fluoropolymer coating penetrates the sprayed surface. This produces […]
