Thermal Spray Metalizing  |  Metal Coating  Applications

Thermal Spray Metalizing is a substitute for painting structural, ornamental, fencing and miscellaneous steel. Protects steel for decades longer than paint alone.

This is a proven process, which has been used around the world for 90 years. Steel of every shape and size may be metalized either in-shop before construction or on-site instead of less effective repainting.

Metalizing is the most versatile and effective coating for protecting steel structures, such as structural, fences, gates, outdoor furniture, available today.

Thermal Coating Process

CROSS_SECTION

The metalizing process always begins with proper surface preparation. Next, aluminum wire or zinc wire is continuously melted in an electric arc spray or gas flame spray gun. Clean, compressed air strips droplets of molten metal from the wire depositing these particles onto the steel forming the protective coating. This sprayed metal coating is both a barrier coating and a galvanic coating in one. A single metalized coating protects steel for 20 years.

Metalizing can be applied virtually all year round. Sprayed aluminum and zinc coatings contain no polluting volatile organic compounds (VOC’s).
