Plasma Processes offers a wide variety of materials and material combinations to produce coatings and net-shape components. Virtually any material with a true melt point can be deposited by thermal spray processes. Materials that dissociate, decompose or sublime at elevated temperatures can also be deposited when combined with other materials. Thus most metals; intermetallics; alloys, all forms of ceramics including oxides, borides, silicides, etc; cermets; and some polymers are sprayable by one or more of the thermal spray processes.
The EL-Form® process is well suited to platinum group and refractory metals including iridium, molybdenum niobium, rhenium, ruthenium, tungsten, hafnium and boron.
