A search for cheap spraying materials offering interesting properties is conducted in connection with utilization of the high throughput water stabilized plasma. In this regard very promising materials are silicates. WSP PAL 160 was used for spraying garnets in their natural form and fused and crushed basalt. Chemical composition of both these materials is based generally on the same components but their contents are different. Paper reports on the spraying parameters used and then describes the structure and phase composition of deposits as well as their selected properties. Garnet of almandine type can be sprayed very well at a wide variety of parameters while pyrope type spraying is more difficult. Very interesting coatings were made of basalt.
