Types of Thermal Spray Coatings

  • General
  • PTFE
  • DURA-SLIDE™

There are literally hundreds of coating materials that we can apply by thermal spraying. These materials provide an array of properties like wear and corrosion resistance, gripping surfaces, electrical properties and thermal barriers. All of our thermal sprayed coatings an be used "as sprayed" or can be machined or finished.

In many cases, these coatings can be used as an alternative to plating or anodizing. They can also be applied to several base materials including metals, plastics, and ceramics. The following is a condensed list of the materials we can apply. It is best to contact us with your specific coating need.

METALS

This list represents a fraction of the available metals. Also, when needed, special formulations can be obtained.

Pure Metals Alloys
  • Copper
  • Aluminum
  • Molybdenum
  • Tungsten
  • Zinc
  • Stainless Steels
  • Tungsten Carbide
  • Chrome Carbide
  • Common Steels
  • Babbit

CERAMICS

The ceramics can be used in many ways: for wear or corrosion resistance, thermal barriers, electrical insulation and excellent surface finishes.

  • Aluminum Oxide
  • Titanium Oxide
  • Zirconium Oxide
  • Chromium Oxide
  • Blends of Various Ceramics

PLASTIC

The plastic coating can be used for:

  • Chemical Resistance
  • Bearing Surfaces
  • Abrasion Resistance

The non-stick industrial finish product PTFE has become so well known, it often is used to refer to all fluoropolymer-type coatings. Many companies formulate and manufacture these types of coatings. To offer our customers the best selection, we use products from numerous companies including:

Dupont * Whitford Corporation * EM Corporation

We coat an assortment of parts for many different applications. Our equipment and facilities enable us to process very large or very small parts. The coatings meet many specifications, including FDA Food Contact regulations.

NOT JUST NON-STICK, BLACK, OR WHITE

PTFE coatings can be used to provide many properties aside from their widely known "non-stick" quality. These include:

  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Low Friction Surface
  • Dry Lubrication
  • Dielectric Properties
  • Electrical Conductivity

Our most frequently requested and applied non-stick type coating, is our own DURA-SLIDE™. This coating system integrates one of many wear resistant thermal sprayed coatings (i.e. stainless steel, ceramic, tungsten carbide) with a topcoat of PTFE or other similar material. DURA-SLIDE™ is excellent in situations where abrasion, scraping, or other wear is encountered.

DURA-SLIDE™ DURABILITY

A DURA-SLIDE™ Series coating performs better than ordinary coatings because it retains the PTFE or other non-stick material within a hard, wear resistant thermal sprayed metal or ceramic.

These components perform better with DURA-SLIDE™.

  • Hoppers
  • Rotary Cutters
  • Guillotine Blades
  • Paddles
  • Mixing Bowls 
Ceramics Metals
  • Chrome Oxide
  • Aluminum Oxide
  • Titanium Oxide
  • Tungsten
  • Carbide
  • Stainless Steel
  • Chrome Carbide
DURA-SLIDE™ DURABILITY

WHAT IS THE DURA-SLIDE™ SERIES?

The DURA-SLIDE™ Series combines a specially applied thermal sprayed metal or ceramic with one of many PTFE-type materials. This combination creates a unique coating system that adds "durability" to the "slide" of PTFE or other similar materials. A DURA-SLIDE™ coating is ideal for use in any situation that requires a durable non-stick (release), dry lube, or corrosion resistant coating.

Thermal Sprayed Coatings include:

  • Plasma Coatings
  • High Velocity Oxy Fuel Coatings
  • Electric Arc Coatings
  • Oxy/Fuel (Flame Spray) Coatings
