Electric wire spraying is a technique in which two electrically conductive wires are transported through a spray gun. An electric arc is created between the outer ends of the wires, which causes them to melt. Using compressed air the melted material is transported to the substrate where it forms a coating layer.
Using this process coating layers can be applied rapidly and at low energy cost. The advantages of electric wire spraying are the high spraying capacity and good adhesion. The equipment can operate at low energy cost, while the mobility of the equipment is high, making the process suitable for on-site operation.
Fields of application:
- Repair of components
- Atmospheric and temperature corrosion protection
- Anti-slip and traction coating
