What is thermal spraying?

Thermal spraying is a generic category of coating processes that apply a consumable as a spray of finely divided molten or semi-molten droplets to produce a coating.

Science Direct

Thermal spraying comprises a group of processes in which finely divided metallic or non-metallic surface materials are deposited in a molten or semi-molten condition on a substrate to form a deposit.


Coatings deposited utilizing different thermal spray variants have been widely used for diverse industrial applications. Today, various coating techniques belonging to the thermal spray family and spanning a vast cost–quality range have been embraced by the industry to either extend the longevity of components or enhance their performance, especially when these parts routinely operate in harsh conditions.

Emerald Insight- Nanochrystallines

The purpose of this paper is to investigate improving high‐temperature oxidation resistance of titanium by developing new coatings based on aluminum and its combination with the substrate. Nanocrystalline plasma electrolytic saturations were applied on the surface of commercially pure titanium in an aqueous bath.
