Metal spray resizing helps rejuvenate hydraulic cylinder parts by replacing worn portions

Metal Spray

Metal spray resizing can be used to help rejuvenate used parts by replacing worn portions.

Additionally, Metal spray can also be used to give parts a wear or corrosion resistant skin.

Several grades offering high wear resistance, good corrosion resistance, low shrinkage and high strength are available for:

  • High-Chrome, high-carbon stainless steel
  • Stainless steel alloy
  • Nickel chromium alloy

The following is a brief summary of each possible metal spray option.

Nickel/Aluminium Materials

These materials are self bonding, oxidation-resistant coatings of high structural integrity.

Dual-function Single Stage Materials

These materials are self bonding and can be used as a one step, or bond coating. In addition, grades supplied have many properties available which may be suitable to your requirements i.e. surface finish, post-machining, wear, heat, corrosion and impact resistance.

Other Iron, Nickel & Cobalt Based Materials

The following materials offer resistance to corrosion and erosion at elevated temperatures.

They are also resistant to fretting and galling particularly in poor lubricated conditions.

Self Fluxing Alloys

Offering dense high wear and corrosion resistant fused coatings that are still machinable.

  • Nickel & Cobalt based
  • Nickel or Cobalt based with Tungsten Carbide

Non-Ferrous Metals

These materials have good resistant properties as well as being easily machined, with a finished hardness similar to mild steel.

  • Bronzes
  • Copper

Refractory Metals

These metals are tough and hard with excellent sliding properties plus fret and galling resistance.

  • Molybdenum
  • Tungsten

Oxide Ceramic Materials

These materials can be made from a considerable number of blends which offer many differing properties to cope with exacting demands and requirements.

Tungsten Carbide Materials

These materials can comprise thin, hard dense, semi-fused wear resistant coatings and can also be ground to provide an excellent surface finish.

  • Tungsten Carbide-Cobalt Composite
  • Tungsten Carbide Blends

Chromium & Other Carbide Materials

Offering resistance to wear at elevated temperatures and good smooth surface coatings.

  • Chromium Carbides
