Does ‘metal arc spray’ sound like a phrase you would expect to hear in a sci-fi movie? If so, you may be surprised to find out that metal arc spray refers to a high-quality industrial process where a metal item is coated in a thin, strong coating of a second metal.
What is the point of the metal arc spray Clopton manufacturers use?
There are two main reasons to metal arc spray. They most common is to protect the material from corrosion. For example, by coating with zinc or aluminium, a steel frame will be protected from rusting and last much longer. This is especially important if the object will be used in a location where corrosion is a major problem, such as marine uses. The protection given by a metal arc spray is better than simply galvanising the material.
The second reason is for the look of the finish. A metal arc spray gives a smooth, polished and hardwearing metal coat to the item, which can be useful if the item is ornamental.
How does metal arc spray work?
A specially adapted spray gun is used. It has two wires of the metal which are charged with electricity. They create an arc of electricity and atoms of the metal become molten. Compressed air blasts this molten metal onto the surface to be coated. As the particles of molten metal hit the coating surface, the splat onto it. More and more particles hit the surface and build a strong, smooth layer of metal.
Why is metal arc spray so useful?
