TYPES OF COATINGS

The large variety of materials that can be sprayed allows thermal projection to be used for many applications, in numerous industries, such as:

  • Protection against corrosion
  • Refurbishment after wear
  • Insulation or conductivity
  • Improve mechanical properties

One sprayed material can fulfill many functions at the same time. Note that the coating materials presented are only a small part of what we can spray.

METALLIC COATINGS

Carbon steels

The higher the carbon content, the harder the steel is.

Chrome steels

Very good resistance to corrosion and wear. They can be welded or sprayed.

Stainless steels

Very good resistance to corrosion and wear.

Manganese steel
(Hadfield steel)

Good resistance to wear by impact.

Aluminum

Anti-corrosion coating ensuring a very good preservation of steels due to galvanic protection in various atmospheric, rural or industrial environments.

Silver

Mainly used in electrical contacts due to its great conductivity.

Copper

Can be used for electrical contacts. Offers good adherence and is corrosion resistant. Also used in printing presses for ink retention.

Molybdenum

Good resistance to wear by friction because it is self lubricating. Used for parts needing a very low friction point without lubricant. Has a high fusion temperature.

Nickel

Good corrosion resistance.

Nickel-Aluminum

Used for thick coatings as it binds strongly.

Nickel-chrome

Resists to highly corrosive atmospheres at high temperatures and to chemical corrosion.

Nickel-Graphite

Good resistance to wear by abrasion since it is self lubricating. For parts needing a low friction coefficient without lubricant.

Tantalum

Coating for high temperatures. Is corrosion resistant.

Tungsten

Coating with a high melting point when pure.

Zinc

It is used for galvanic protection. It can be applied as a coating to protect iron against corrosion in urban, rural and marine atmospheres.

Zinc-Aluminum

Good corrosion resistance in sulfuric or acid atmospheres. Is used for internal protection of acid reservoirs.

POLYMERS

Nylon

Its high resistance makes it the material of choice for small parts subjected to wear, specially in the food industry.

Teflon: (polytetrafluoroethylene)

Good corrosion resistance. Can be applied on many coatings. Extremely low friction coefficient.

Silicone

Applied on many coatings. Offers great resistance to sticking.

OTHER MATERIALS

Alumina

Thermal insulator which is resistant to high temperatures, also used for dielectric coating. Good resistance to wear and corrosion.

Alumina-Titanium

Wear, corrosion and high temperature resistance. Used as a thermal barrier.

Chromium Carbide

Hard coating with good resistance to high temperatures, corrosion and wear.

Titanium Carbide

Lower density than WC-Co, making it a material of choice when mass is critical. Good resistance to wear and corrosion in certain environnements.

Tungsten Carbide / Cobalt
(WC-Co)

Great resistance to wear by friction under low stresses.

Tungsten Carbide / Cobalt – Chromium

Great resistance to wear by friction under low stresses and corrosion resistance.

Chromium Oxide

Very good resistance to wear and corrosion.

Zirconium Oxide

Excellent thermal insulation. Good resistance to high temperatures and chemical corrosion.

Zirconium Silicate

Resistant to high temperatures. Used as a thermal barrier.

Calcium Zirconate

Good resistance to thermal shocks and high temperatures. Resists to corrosion from molten metals.

Magnesium Zirconate

Anti-adhesive properties and resistant to high temperatures and corrosion from molten metals.
