Arc Spray(most often referred to as metalizing, TSA, TSZ, TWAS andeven spray welding) is the most productive and economical of all thermal spray coating systems. Arc Spray uses DC power to energize two conductive wires: one positive and the other negative. These energized wires are then fed through a feeder into a gun head. It is at the gun head that the wires meet and arc against each other, thus creating molten material.
We then introduce ordinary dry compressed air to the arc zone, atomizing the molten material into tiny droplets while also propelling then toward the prepared part. As the droplets hit the work piece or part, they flatten out and make splats. The splats interlock one on top another to create a extremely strong mechanical bond.
