The rolls are exposed to thermal fatigue, high temperatures, bending stresses, corrosion oxidation and abrasion. The standard method of protecting caster rolls is by submerged arc welding with a series […]. Laser cladding, a process that falls into the range of hard- facing solutions, can be used to increase corrosion resistance, wear resistance or impact performance of metallic components, using a method of applying a fully […]. What is Thermal Spraying?
Coating and Surface Engineering - TWI
Thermal spraying is a technology which improves or restores the surface of a solid material. The process can be used to apply coatings to a wide range of materials and components, to provide resistance to: Wear, erosion, cavitation, corrosion, abrasion or heat. Thermal spraying is also used to provide electrical […]. Metallisation has been providing thermal spraying advice, training, support, equipment and consumables to a diverse range of industries around the world, including the aerospace industry, since Stringent […].
During use the bearings at each end of the rubber coated rollers will become impregnated with ink adhesive or other types of debris causing them to seize, inducing the roller […].

Metallisation has been providing thermal spray solutions around the globe for over 90 years. SciTeeX Group, has been active in the surface treatment industry since and today is an international organisation with a modern factory located in Poland. This can be used to increase corrosion resistance, wear resistance or impact performance of metallic components.
Introduction to Thermal Spray and Engineering Applications. This is a general introduction to coatings used for engineering applications, wear coatings, thermal barrier coatings etc. Increases microscopic surface area exposed to corrosion. Removes strain-hardened surface layers. Cracks brittle metal constituents forming sites for impact hydraulic splitting.
Plastic deformation by high-stress metal-mineral contact causes strain hardening and susceptibility to chemical attack. Corrosion Produces pits that induce microcracking. Microcracks at pits invite hydraulic splitting during impact.
Surface Engineering For Corrosion And Wear Resistance Davis J R
Roughens surface, reducing energy needed to abrade away metal. May produce hydrogen with subsequent absorption and cracking in steel. Selectively attacks grain boundaries and less noble phases of multiphase microstructures, weakening adjacent metal. Impact Plastic deformation makes some constituents more susceptible to corrosion. Cracks brittle constituents, tears apart ductile constituents to form sites for crevice corrosion, hydraulic splitting. Supplies kinetic energy to drive abrasion mechanism. Pressurizes mill water to cause splitting, cavitation, and jet erosion of metal and protective oxidized material.
Pressurizes mill water and gases to produce unknown temperatures, phase changes, and decomposition or reaction products from ore and water constituents. Heats ball metal, ore, fluids to increase corrosive effects.
Many of these selection criteria are addressed in Chap- ters 6 to 8 in this book. Painting is probably the most widely used engineering coating used to protect steel from corrosion.
The most widely used corrosion-resistant metallic coatings are hot- dipped zinc, zinc-aluminum, and aluminum coatings. These coatings ex- hibit excellent resistance to atmospheric corrosion and are widely used in the construction, automobile, utility, and appliance industries. Other important coating processes for steels include electroplating, electroless plating, thermal spraying, pack cementation aluminizing for high-temperature oxidation resistance , and cladding including weld cladding and roll-bonded claddings.
Applications and corrosion perform- ance of these coatings are described in Chapter 6 in this book. Methods to Control Wear. As is described in Chapter 3 in this book, there are many types of wear, but there are only four main types of wear systems tribosystems that produce wear and six basic wear control steps Ref 9. Many wear processes involve fracture of material from a surface; thus toughness and frac- ture resistance play a significant role in wear-resistant surfaces.
The use of very hard materials such as ceramics, cemented carbides, and hard chromium can lead to fracture problems that nullify the benefits of the hard surface. Hardfacing alloys such as cobalt- base and nickel-chromium-boron alloys have been used for many years for applications involving metal-to-metal wear. Other surface- engineering options include through-hardened tool steels, diffusion case -hardened surfaces, selective surface-hardened alloy steels, and some platings.
Rolling-element bear- ings, gears, cams, and similar power-transmission devices often wear by a mechanism of surface fatigue. Repeated point or line con- tact stresses can lead to subsurface cracks that eventually grow to produce surface pits and eventual failure of the device.
Prevention is possible through the use of through-hardened steels, heavy case- hardened steels, and flame-, induction-, electron beam-, or laser- hardened steels. More details on these surface-engineering techniques can be found in Chapters 5 through 8 in this book.
Select from surfacing processes suitable for chosen material and job, Reconsider must satisfy needs for coating density, materials thickness, dilution, etc. Decide if chosen process suits substrate material Yes None and design adhesion, HAZ, access, distortion, Reconsider process etc. Often there are constraints placed on the choice because of availability e. In many cases there is a precedent, but when considering a new problem it helps to follow a checklist of the type shown in Fig.
The sequence of decisions to be made covers several fundamental points. The first is the need to be clear about service conditions, based on experience or plant data. This is the key to material selection. The second decision is the choice of application process for the material. This involves the question of compatibility with the coating material; that is, not all ma- terials can be applied by all processes.
A further question of compatibility arises between both material and process with the substrate, for example, whether distortion from high-temperature processes be tolerated. All these issues are covered in subsequent chapters in this book see, in particular, Chapters 7 and 8. References 1. Cotell and J. DE 4. Ludema, Ed. Pozzo and I.
