Thermal Spray Plasma Coating Services

Industrial Plating Company offers its customers the advantages of Ceramic and Metal Coatings using Plasma Flame Spray technology. With these processes we are able to increase wear resistance, reduce or eliminate corrosion, create thermal barriers, and insulate or conduct electricity. 

The applications of Plasma Flame Spray technology are practically unlimited. Many materials that can be prepared in a powder form can be applied through these processes and virtually any finish desired can be obtained.

Examples of Plasma Spray  Applications

  • Pump Shafts
  • Industrial Rolls
  • Agitator Blades
  • Compressor Pistons
  • Armature Shafts
  • Pump Augers
  • Fan Shafts
  • Hydraulic Rods
  • Impellers
  • Roll Journals
  • Turbine Shafts
  • Squeeze Rolls
  • Gear Surfaces
  • Bearing Surfaces
  • Mandrels
  • Spindles
  • Insulation Coatings
  • Conductive Coatings


The three most important performance features of Ceramic Coatings are wear resistance, resistance to high temperatures, and electrical insulation. These coatings also resist oxidizing agents, strong acids, and alkalis.

Wear Resistance is the most common application for ceramic coatings. The coating helps to prevent wear, fretting, galling, rubbing or sliding wear and particle erosion. Many Ceramic Coatings offer wear resistance that is superior to stainless steel, hardened steel, or hard metal coating processes.

A Ceramic Coating can transform an ordinary metal into a high-performance material. But there's more to it than just deciding on which coating to use.  Industrial Plating Company uses a large array of sophisticated equipment to assure high quality results.

Proper application is extremely critical. High bond strength is possible only through careful control of the melting and subsequent propulsion of metallic or ceramic particles onto the substrate.
