Most manufacturing and industrial equipments suffer heavy wear rates owing to their service conditions. Thermal spray coatings impart high-quality wear resistant properties to the base metal, which the base materials do not necessarily have. Thermal spraying is a surface coating technology by which metallic or nonmetallic materials are deposited in a molten or semi-molten condition onto a base metal surface to optimize its characteristics and to protect against wear, abrasion, corrosion and/or erosion. Numerous combinations of base material and coating material are possible. This 4-hour course presents an overview of thermal spray technology and discusses thermal spray coating materials, processes, specifications, selection, surface preparation, application, inspection and testing, sealing, maintenance, and safety. This course is based entirely on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Manual 1110-2-3401.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
