There are 5 main thermal spray techniques for applying the coatings. Griekspoor has the in house expertise to apply every one of these techniques.
The coatings sprayed with HVOF are characterized by a low porosity and a high bonding strength.
Plasma spraying is particularly suitable for materials with a high melting point such as ceramic materials.
The extrudable materials for this process are metals and alloys that can be drawn into a wire shape, and have a melting point that is far below the temperature of the heat source used.
In this process the spray material is fed in powder form through the gun using a transport gas injecting it centrally into a burning gas/oxygen mixture, where it is melted and delivered onto the substrate.
