- Plasma Spray Powder / Wire Description:
1) Plasma spraying, one of the thermal spraying family, is a materials processing technique for producing coatings and free-standing parts using a plasma jet.
2) Deposits having thickness from micrometers to several millimeters can be produced from a variety of materials - metals, ceramics, polymers and composites.
- Plasma Spray Powder / Wire Chemical Properties Available:
Generally the same as thermal spray powders available
- Plasma Spray Powder / Wire Typical Applications:
1) The material to be deposited (feedstock) - typically as a powder, rarely as a liquid, suspension or wire - is introduced into the plasma jet, emanating from a plasma torch. In the jet, where the temperature is in the order of 10 000 K, the material is melted and propelled towards a substrate. There, the molten droplets flatten, rapidly solidify anfeed form a deposit. Commonly, the deposits remain adherent to the substrate as coatings; free-standing parts can also be produced by removing the substrate. There is a large number of technological parameters that influence the interaction of the particles with the plasma jet and the substrate and therefore the deposit properties. These parameters include feedstock type, plasma gas composition and flow rate, energy input, torch offset distance, substrate cooling, etc.
2) This technique is mostly used to produce coatings on structural materials. Such coatings provide protection against high temperatures, corrosion, erosion, wear; they can also change the appearance, electrical or tribological properties of the surface, replace worn material, etc. When sprayed on substrates of various shapes and removed, free-standing parts in the form of plates, tubes, shells, etc. can be produced. It can be also used for powder processing - spheroidization, homogenization, modification of chemistry, etc. In that case, the substrate for deposition is absent and the particles solidify during flight or in a controlled environment (e.g. water).
