Thermal Spraying

The main frame of work of the Thermal Spraying group consists of the development of new spraying technologies (such as suspension spraying), new coating solutions (such as coatings for heating elements, thermoelectric modules or hard metal coatings for components subjected to high stress), as well as the characterization of coatings (for example, laser acoustic surface waves – Lawave®).



Suspension Spraying

The substitution of the conventional spray powders by suspensions offers new possibilities, such as the direct use of finely dispersed powders, and thus saving in the production of specific thermal spraying feedstock powder, and the production of nanostructured coatings.
