Powder spraying

Standard Particle Size Distribution
5 50 μm

Powder spraying, also known as thermal spray coating, is a metal powder technology in which a stream of molten or semi-molten metal particles is sprayed onto a surface to form a coating. 

In powder spraying, metal powder is fed into a spray gun, where it is melted or heated to a semi-molten state. The spray gun then projects the molten or semi-molten metal particles onto the surface to be coated, where they solidify to form a coating. The process is typically performed in a controlled environment to ensure high-quality coating production. 


Powder spraying is used in a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, marine, and industrial manufacturing. It is particularly useful for applications that require high durability and resistance to wear and corrosion, such as turbine blades, engine components, and industrial machinery. Powder spraying can also be used for repair and maintenance applications, such as repairing damaged parts or recoating worn surfaces. 

In summary, powder spraying is a versatile and reliable coating process that offers high durability, precision and versatility. It is a valuable tool in a variety of industries because of its ability to coat a wide range of surfaces and produce strong, durable coatings. 


High durability

Powder spraying produces a strong and durable coating that resists wear, corrosion and other forms of damage.


Powder spraying can be used to apply coatings to a wide variety of surfaces, including metals, ceramics, plastics and composites.


Powder spraying can be used to apply coatings with high precision and consistency, making it well-suited for use in aerospace, automotive and other industries that require high-quality coatings.


Powder spraying can be performed with relatively simple equipment, making it a cost-effective coating method.
