What is Thermal Spraying?
Metallizing, or thermal spraying, is a process by which a material wire or powder is fed into a spray gun and then melted and sprayed onto a work piece. Thermal spraying is particularly suited to protecting articles which are too large to be dipped in galvanizing baths as the coating can reach structures that are already installed. Zinc thermal spraying is an alternative coating solution that protects steel from erosion – saving time and money.
Thermal Spraying in Action
Zinc coatings of almost any thickness can be applied, from 0.002 in. to more than 0.02 in.
No Drying Time
Since zinc adheres and sets quickly, no drying time is needed.
Applied in Field
Spraying can be carried out either in a shop or in the field.
