This article provides an overview of thermal spray processes. It describes the microstructural character of thermal spray coatings as well as the criteria for coating selection. The optimization, parameterization, and surface preparation and treatments for the thermal spray coatings are also discussed. The article illustrates the adhesion of polymer coatings and the thermal spray process used to remove lead-base paint. It provides information on the specifications, standardization, and guidelines for thermal spray applicators.
