Volume 5A provides an introduction to thermal spray technology including plasma spray, high velocity oxy-fuel, and detonation gun deposition. It explains how each process works and the types of coating materials typically used. It also addresses critical application issues, including substrate requirements, surface preparation, bonding agents, adhesion, and uniformity, and their effect on surface properties, wear, corrosion, and thermal barrier performance. The volume also provides practical information on how to test and analyze thermal spray coatings and it presents several examples of how thermal spray technology is being used.
