Plasma Applied Coatings

Associated Wear Coatings Plasma Applied Coatings

Associated Wear Coatings has had a large amount of experience in the last 27 years providing plasma applied coatings on all types of pieces. What are the advantages of using this type of coating?

  • Complex parts covered with plasma applied coatings are more easily masked than with the HVOF process.
  • This process has the ability to spray materials with a higher melting temperature than the other coating systems.
  • The shorter stand off distance of this gun allows the coating of smaller I.D.'s than the HVOF system.
  • The ability to use a shield gas improves the coating quality by producing a more oxide free coating.
