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 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 Bond Coating

Bond Coats are used in the following circumstances:- • To improve adhesion when basis materials have been prepared mechanically. • Where the substrate material is too hard for mechanical preparation. • Where mechanical preparation would damage the substrate material. • Where mechanical preparation is uneconomic. • Where the chosen coating will not adhere to the […]

application Surface preparation by gritblasting

Grit blasting is the most commonly used method of preparing surfaces for metal spraying. It removes rust, mill scale and other surface contaminants and produces a suitably roughened surface by projecting a highly concentrated stream of relatively small abrasive particles at high velocity against the surface to be cleaned. It has also been shown to […]

application Preparation for Spraying

Sprayed coatings adhere to surfaces mainly by mechanical and physical means; in a few instances, metallurgical or chemical bonding may occur to a small degree. Whatever the mechanism of adhesion, it is vital that the surface to be sprayed is clean and adequately roughened. Over 80% of coating failures are due to poor or incorrect […]

application Safety in Metal Spraying

Metal Spraying is not a dangerous process, if equipment is treated with care and correct spraying practices are followed. However, as with any industrial process, there are a number of hazards of which the operator should be aware and against which specific precautions should be taken. Ideally, equipment should be operated automatically in enclosures specially […]

application Corrosion protection coating selection / life

Introduction The selection of a coating system is dependent on the environment in which it is to operate. These environments are detailed below. This is followed by the range of systems available and a chart to indicate the typical time to first maintenance. The treatments recommended for longer lives will always protect for shorter periods […]

application Corrosion protection – The benefits of sprayed metallic layers

Protection against corrosion. The benefits of sprayed metallic layers There is almost no limitation on the size of component or structure which can be treated. The materials are simple to apply using Metallisation combustion flame or electric arc spraying equipment. Operators can be trained in a relatively short time and, with a small amount of […]

application Internal steelwork with high humidity

The roof structure of an up-to-date dispatch department situated at the premises of ‘Frederick Robinson Breweries Ltd’ has been treated for anti-corrosive protection using one of the Metallisation systems. The structure, manufactured from mild steel, consists of 400 frames each 0.914M2 (3ft) square, assembled by means of joining brackets. The protective system employed was as […]
