Serving Customers in a Wide Variety of Industries

Industries served include a broad spectrum in the chemical, petrochemical, refining, power generation, marine, pulp/paper, printing, food, plastics, textile, wire/strip and general metalworking.

State of the Art Equipment

Hypervelocity oxy-fuel (HVOF)
Produces coatings equivalent to or better than detonation gun. Used for some pure metals, alloys and carbides. Gives highest possible bond strength. Propels gases up to 4,500 ft./sec. at 5,200° F.

Plasma
Nontransferred arc system. Used principally for ceramics but has the capability to apply some pure metals, alloys and carbides. Propels gases up to 2,000 ft./sec. at 30,000° F.

Wire Arc
Twin wire system. Used for heavier build-up of pure metals and alloys. Propels gases up to 1,100 ft./sec. at 10,000° F.
