Metal and Metal Alloy Thermal Spray Coatings
- Metal alloys can be used as bond coatings for other thermal spray coatings
- Nickel and Ni alloys such as NiAl are commonly used for dimensional buildup of parts for ease of machining
- Stainless steel, NiCr, etc. can be used to restore dimensions or to put an improved surface for wear and corrosion.
- Stellite, Triballoy, and other tribological materials can be used for improved performance over an easily fabricated base material.
- Molybdenum (Mo) and other refractory metals can be used for high temperature wear resistance, for sliding wear, and applications requiring lubricity
- Cobalt (Co), Tantalum (Ta), Chromium (Cr), Tungsten (W) and similar types of materials offer specialized properties.
- Copper (Cu) and Aluminum (Al) based materials are used for corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and other applications
- MCrAlY’s, such as CoCAlY, NiCrAlY, CoNiCrAlY and NiCoCrAlY, are used for hot oxidation protection and corrosion protection in gas turbine applications and in high temperature wear and corrosion up to 1000°C. They are also excellent bond coat materials.
- MCrAlY’s (NiCrAlY, CoCrAlY, NiCoCrAlY, CoNiCrAlY)
- Nickel Aluminum alloys (NiAl)
- Nichrome (NiCr)
- Molybdenum (Mo)
- Titanium (Ti)
