Thermal Spray A leader for over 50 years
For over 50 years, Flame-Spray Industries has been developing and implementing advanced thermal spray services. We serve a wide variety of industries, including research and development, automotive manufacturing, and heavy equipment engine remanufacturing. Our goal is to make your engines lighter, faster, and more durable.
What is Thermal Spray?
Thermal spray is a process that involves depositing molten, semi-molten, or solid particles onto a substrate to form a functional coating or a freestanding part. The particles travel at high velocity, causing them to flatten on impact with the substrate. These flattened particles, known as “splats,” build up to form the final coating or part.
Benefits of Thermal Spray
Flame-Spray Industries is a reliable supplier of top-quality thermal spray solutions, including PTWA, Kinetic Spray, and Twin Wire Arc Electrospray. We work with a wide range of industries, from automotive manufacturing to research and development.
Thermal spray coatings are used in several industries for their beneficial properties, including:
Repair of damaged surfaces
Electrical insulation and
Biological functions such as bioactivity
What We Offer
At Flame-Spray Industries, we offer three key thermal spray processes for engineering improved surfaces for enhanced performance as well as repairing worn surface.
PTWA (Plasma Transferred Wire Arc)
PTWA or Plasma Transferred Wire Arc is a robust plasma thermal spray process originally designed to coat the internal surface of engine cylinder bores. This technology is currently in production at multiple facilities worldwide including high volume production.
Kinetic Spray is a production-ready coating process currently running at multiple facilities. This process can coat or repair parts achieving excellent material properties.
Twin Wire Arc Electrospray
Flame-Spray has been providing twin wire arc systems since 1964. The Twin Wire Arc Electrospray system has been engineered to operate in a robust, reliable, and economical manner to produce high quality coating at high deposition rates.
