In the cold spray process, the coating material, by using high particle speed, is plasticized when hitting the substrate and is combined with the base material. In principle, the process is similar to explosion welding. Contrary to the conventional thermal spraying methods the material is not melted. This paper reviews the development of equipment and process controls for a comprehensive cold spray system.
