Metal / Arc Spraying
Metal or arc spraying is a technology which protects or extends the life of a wide variety of products in the most hostile environments and in situations where coatings are vital for safety and performance.
Metal spraying involves the melting of a raw material in wire or powder form, before propelling the atomised material towards the work piece at high velocity to create a coating.
Thermal spray is used in many engineering applications ranging from salvage or reclamation through to the provision of wear and corrosion resistant coatings. Further applications are found in the electrical, electronic, marine and transport industries
Zinc Arc Spraying
Zinc arc spraying provides a reliable alternative to other anit-corrosion options for large items and projects that may otherwise be distorted by a hot dip process. The arc spray process allows for on site application, post construction touch up and varied coating thickness depending on end use requirement.
During the Zinc spray process the Zinc wire is atomised and blasted into the prepared surface. The coating thickness is tested during the process to ensure the correct build-up is achieved for the durability requirements of the end product.
Once coated, the item can easily be over coated with a variety of paint / sealer finishes.
Metal Technology can provide a quick breakdown response when plant fails.
Some repairs can be performed onsite, however often it is more cost effective to transport the item to our fully equipped engineering workshop.
