We carry out anticorrosion treatments by Metallisation with ferric and non-ferric metals, with mobile teams for in-situ jobs and parts recovery. There is also the possibility of carrying out automatic metallisation for larger surfaces.
Metallisation, also called thermal flame spraying, is a thermal spray procedure or technique. In this technique an oxygen-fuel flame melts the feeder metal (powder or wire) and a gas spray gun is used to spray the liquid particles over the substrate. This procedure is usually used to protect against corrosion (Zinc, Aluminium alloys,…) or against wear and tear.
This is the oldest thermal spraying technology. It was invented by Max Ulrich Schoop in 1942.
Thermal spraying is the technique used in manufacturing components that consists of spraying small molten, semi-molten, hot and even cold (“cold spray”) particles that successively accumulate on the surface area. The aim is to provide surface treatment for the parts that are going to be subjected to extreme friction, wear and tear, heat and/or mechanical stress conditions.
It is used a lot for components in the automobile industry (valves), the aeronautical industry (turbine engines), gas turbines (blades), printing (cylinders), medicine (implants), coatings for metallic surfaces near the sea (petrochemical plants).
