Thermal Spraying … mechanically bonded high-performance surfaces
Thermal Spraying processes produce high-performance surfaces with absolutely no risk of distortion or metallurgical changes to the component. LaserBond has a range of coating processes to apply cost-effective metallic or non-metallic based coatings onto (usually) metallic substrates.
In these processes, the coating material is introduced to an extreme heat source in the form of wire or powder. The molten material is transferred to the component at a very high velocity where it mechanically bonds to the substrate. Our thermal spray booths are designed for both high volume production and short-run projects.
At LaserBond we use a number of thermal spray processes including High-Pressure High-Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HP HVOF), Electric-Arc Spraying, Plasma-Arc Spraying and a range of supplementary thermal spraying systems.
