The preparation process for materials undergoing metal spraying

Metal spraying preparation process

Specific processes and standard operating procedures are required in order for the application and construction projects to be implemented seamlessly. Brooklyn Engineering is at the forefront of implementing and enhancing these processes and systems.

The preparation process for materials undergoing metal spraying should follow a specific set and routine of aligned steps. Different materials have various characteristics and core components that require an in-depth analysis of temperature curing, enhancements and maintenance processes. The overall steps would include Surface Preparation, Metalizing the materials, selecting the metalizing process as well as coating the metal as a final step.

To begin with, the surfaces should be adequately prepared with chemicals and surface metal spraying. It should be of utmost importance that the surface does not have any grease, oil or other contaminants that could damage the mechanical bond of the metal surface.

Typical methods would include machining, bond coating as well as abrasive blasting. The machining would need undercuts made on either cylindrical or plane surfaces. The heating and cooling properties should be specifically measured and calculated for accurate application of the metal spraying.

Additional chemical components and coverings can include bond coating with a thin spray with elements such as nickel, alloy or molybdenum that is applied to the surface for improved bond strength. Thermal spraying is another alternative to the mechanical bonding process and prevents coating adhesion and corrosion in the long-term.
