Thermal spray coatings are not the end all be all. They aren’t the perfect, miraculous solution for all manufacturing wear and corrosion problems. It is in the best interest of everyone to learn, not only the benefits of thermal spray, but also, it’s limitations.
Welding, in some form, has been around as far back as the Middle Ages; joining metal for fabrication and structural purposes. We are quite fond of one form that is often overlooked, hardface welding. Hardface welding is the application of specialized alloys onto the surface of a part to create a superior wear and corrosion surface.
