How It Werx
For those new to themal spray, here are some of the basics:
Before spraying the coating, the surface must be cleaned and roughened. A fine grit blast roughens the surface to anchor the coating to the substrate. Bond strengths for carbide materials exceed 70 MPa or 10,000 psi.
Generation of the Energetic Gas Flow
Thermal Spray uses hot gas to heat and accelerate the feedstock material. The hot gas is generated by combustion as in HVOF and flame spray or is created by striking arc between electrodes as in plasma and wire arc spraying.
Feedstock (powder, wire or suspension)
Powder and wire feeds stocks are the most common materials used in thermal spray. Suspension feeds are seeing interest for thermal barrier and catalytic coating applications.
In HVOF, powders are heated and accelerated to velocities exceeding 700 m/sec and bringing the feedstock materials to their melting point. All this is done in less than 1 ms.
Molten or semi-molten particles impact the roughened substrate at high speed and “splat” on the surface. These pancake type splats are successively built up one upon the other creating the coating. Coatings are primarily evaluated by their hardness, porosity and stress state.
Post Processing of the Coating
Many applications require post machining or grinding of the coating after spraying. Coatings can be honed or superfinished to mirror-like finishes.
