Plasma Spray Coating Services
Plasma spraying is where powder coatings are fed into a high-powered jet, where they melt and are then sprayed over a surface. It is a type of thermal coating, and our expert team at IRS will be able to help you choose the best thermal coating for your requirements. All the different thermal coatings have distinctive benefits, and choosing the correct one will help your project have a more long-lasting and cost-effective result. Plasma spraying is a flexible solution for many industries including aerospace, agriculture, automotive, and medical.
What are the benefits of plasma spraying?
Plasma spraying is incredibly versatile. Almost all materials are available in powder form for plasma spraying. Due to the process of how plasma spraying works it is possible to coat a wide range of materials. From metals to ceramics, as well as glass and plastics, the list is endless. This range means that plasma spraying is an excellent solution to a variety of issues, whereas other thermal coatings may not solve the problem. Plasma spraying gives corrosion protection, wear resistance, and heat protection which makes it suitable for a range of applications and uses.
When should we choose plasma spraying?
Plasma spraying is commonly used for turbine blades, as it helps with clearance control. To improve the efficiency of turbines, which is both ecological good practice, as well as cost-efficient it is important to improve the turbine tip clearance. It is used in gas turbines for fretting wear and high-temperature resistance in gas turbine combustion hardware.
