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 Using TSA to Protect Pipelines from Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)

In the petrochemical industry Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) in pipeline systems consumes a significant percentage of the maintenance budget. A large portion of this money is spent on expensive items such as external piping inspection, insulation removal and re-installation, painting and pipe replacements. CUI prevention strategies provide long term and reliable prevention of CUI that […]

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 […]
