If you need to protect or restore a metal part, you may automatically turn to a conventional chemically deposited coating. However, thermal spray is increasingly being sought as a viable alternative to traditional coatings such as hard chrome. Thermal sprays protect a variety of metal substrates against damaging conditions and are well-suited for a long list of applications and industries. And, with the addition of polymers, they have exceptional non-stick and corrosion protection properties. For these and many other reasons, your surface protection decision shouldn’t be complete without also considering thermal sprays.
