term: thermal spraying


a method of applying metal-ceramic or polymer coatings up to a thickness of several millimetres by transferring condensed particles in a gas or plasma flow.


Thermal spraying is used to form functional coatings – wear resistant, corrosion-resistant, antifriction, extreme pressure, heat resistant, insulating, conductive, etc. – on the surface of parts and equipment.

The particles forming the coating usually are
