PLASMA SPRAYING

SPRAYING WITH HIGH ENERGY

The coating material (powder) is introduced by means of carrier gas into a plasma jet, melted and deposited on the prepared surface.

The plasma jet is generated by a centrally disposed electrode (cathode), an annular nozzle (anode) and a dissociating and ionizing plasma gas.

As plasma gases may be used: hydrogen, nitrogen, argon or helium.

AREAS / BENEFITS

  • Plasma spraying is suitable for the processing of refractory metals, oxides, carbides, borides, etc.
  • Applications: Aerospace (e.g. turbine blades and inlet areas), medical technology (implants), thermal barrier coatings

TYPICAL MATERIALS

Metals: molybdenum, chromium steel, Ni-Cr steel etc.
Ceramics: Al2O3, Al2O3/TiO2; Cr2O3, Cr2O3/TiO2
