Metal Spraying

Durability with high performance

We use Aluminium and Zinc metal spray for industries such as the Ministry of DefenceRail and exhaust systems. Metal Spraying gives a high quality finish and offers a range of advantages:

  • Coatings are available for almost instant use with no drying or curing times.
  • Higher degree of bond strength than most other thermally sprayed deposits.
  • More economic coatings due to the use of compressed air and electricity.
  • Metal spray will provide a long life coating of 10 to 25 years.
  • Zinc metal spray is suitable for protection of up to 200o
  • Aluminium metal spray gives protection against temperatures of up to 400o

It is often specified in preference to galvanising for its ease of application without the need for drain / vent holes.

Our large spray booth can accommodate items up to 2.8m long x 2.5m wide that enables us to metal spray a wide range of projects both large and small.

 

The Process

Metal spraying is the process of spraying molten non-ferrous metals. The molten material, which is propelled on to the required object, is atomised by a cone of compressed air.

All metal sprayed items are shot blasted to S.A.3 prior to being metal sprayed.

On contact the molten spray solidifies onto the surface to form a dense, strong, adherent coating. Once completed, items can be given a decorative coat of paint, depending on customer requirements.
