Fusion Thermal Spray Coating

What is fusion spray?

Fusion spray is a type of thermal coating that is used for treating components in nuclear reactor plants. The parts in the reactor need to be treated with a certain process in order for them to be suitable to use in this environment. Thermonuclear fusion is a potential energy source for the future, as it can provide us with cleaner energy as we move away from fossil fuels. Keeping the components in a plant functional under the extremes of pressure and heat is crucial to developing this energy source.

What are the benefits of fusion spray?

Fusion spray creates a certain type of coating specifically for use in thermonuclear plants. It is designed to be subjected to the incredibly high forces in a nuclear plant. The industry is constantly researching the best types of materials to use for coatings. We keep up to date with the latest research into the best alloys to use to enable the parts to withstand the conditions for longer. The forces created in a nuclear plant are intense, and the alloys that are used to coat the parts need to be extremely resilient and resistant to withstand the pressure in the environment. When you come to us, you can be confident that we are keeping abreast of the latest technologies.
