It is usually an advantage if the particle temperature during arc spraying is very high in order to achieve adequate adhesion. In the capacitor industry, however, the material to be coated is very sensitive and damage occurs at temperatures between 120 deg C and 180 deg C, that is, well below the melting point of the materials to be sprayed. Freshly developed arc spraying systems enable spraying materials to be processed at the lowest possible temperatures, which is presented in this article. This discussion attempts to strengthen the readers' background on the production steps used for capacitor end spray. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
