Wire Arc Spraying from Celcoat, Sheffield

Wire Arc Spraying is excellent for applications that require a heavy coating deposit, giving superior bond strengths and low porosity levels at high spray rates therefore, it is well suited for dimensional restoration of both mis-machined and worn parts,

Wire Arc Spraying is a form of thermal spraying where two consumable metal wires are fed independently into the spray gun. The contact of the wires creates the arc an arc. The arc produces such a temperature that it transforms the wires into a molten state, which is then deposited onto, a substrate at which point the impacting particles rapidly solidify to form a coating.

Benefits of Wire Arc Spraying

  • High thickness build upStrong Adhesion

  • Extend service life
  • Coating Characteristics
  • Dense coatings
  • Anti-wearAnti-corrosion
  • Repair of mis-machined components
  • Restoration

Materials Deposited

The Wire arc spray coating method (wire arc spraying) allows for a wide variety of materials such as Pure metals and Alloys, many base materials can be mirrored which once again shows it suitability to repair and restore components.
