The Basics of Thermal Plasma Spray Guns

The use of Thermal Plasma Spray guns are a widely accepted part of the thermal plastics coating industry. These versatile tools allow the user to adequately coat and direct the flow of plastic plasma so that it. In this way the use of the technology has been able to revolutise how we are able to treat products that need protecting in this way.

Thermal Plasma Spray systems are basically surface-mounted coatings systems where thin sheets of metal are sprayed onto a smooth, flat surface. Typically, the “feedstock” (the flat surface on which the material is spraying) is hot and therefore electrically charged. As the gun fires, the gun nozzle atomises the hot spray onto the desired surface, which gets quickly applied with little time for the material to soak into the surface and cure. Because the gun is designed to be less messy and easier to operate, many companies provide training in its use to their employees.

The practical implications for this use of a gun are maginfold. It means that the application of plasma to specific parts and hard to reach areas of  a product can finally be achieved, In the past jobs where the dipping of a product into the plasma to totally cover it was not an option this cheaper and more direct alternative offers the perfect solution.
