Plasma Thermal Spray Coating

  • Also known as Atmospheric Plasma Spray or APS Process
  • Electric arc inside gun cavity
  • Inert gas feed
  • Intense arc heats and ionizes gases
  • Plasma plume exits through nozzle at extreme temperature
  • Coating particles injected into plume
  • Particles travel to substrate
  • Coating properties can be tailored by process parameter control

Resulting Properties

  • Process of choice for coating ceramic and thermal barrier coating materials
  • High density to high porosity coatings possible
  • Excellent Adhesion
  • Very High Bond Strength
  • Uniform Coating
  • Good oxide ceramic stoichiometry
