Core Processes

Combustion Thermal Spray Coating

CTS’s approach to combustion thermal spray is unique because we are experts in all coating technologies.

We are constantly working towards developing new and better outcomes.

Examples of materials used in the combustion spray process can include zinc/aluminum for anti-corrosion cathodic coatings on steel. Nickel/aluminum for bond coats. Molybdenum for bond coats and adhesive wear. High chromium steel for wear-resistant coatings. Bronze, stainless steels, nickel, and monel for anti-corrosion and wear. Aluminum, and nickel/aluminum for heat and oxidation resistance.

The combustion thermal spray process is accomplished using wire or powder material to address
  • Wear and Erosion
  • Abrasion
  • Adhesive Wear
  • Cavitation
  • Hard Chrome Replacement
  • High Temperature Environments
  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Atmospheric Conditions
  • Cathodic Protection
  • Chemical Environments
  • New Part Manufacturing
  • Dimensional Restoration of parts requiring repair
