Metal Spray Surface Coating
Metal Arc Spraying is one process in a short list of mechanically bonded surface engineered deposits. These deposits can include abrasion, corrosion and erosion resistant materials. Although not a complete metallurgical bond, bond strengths of around 9,000 to 10,000psi are achievable.
Chromium Boride deposits are regularly Metal Arc Sprayed onto components such as boiler tubes and economizer tubes for coal fired power stations. These materials can be applied in Austral Technologies' workshop, on site, or even in-situ.
Chromium Carbide or Complex Chromium Carbide deposits are regularly sprayed onto components subject to fine particle erosion and thermally sprayed aluminium (TSA) is regularly sprayed onto pipes and valve bodies to protect against the elements and corrosion under insulation (CUI)
