Spray metallization

Metallization coatings which are thermally sprayed on steel have been used for almost a hundred years. The metal which is heated to the melting temperature is carried with a stream of gas, e.g. compressed air, to the surface in order to be coated, where it solidifies on a properly prepared rough surface. In our company, we use an arcing device (electric) as a heat source for melting metals. We carry out spraying services for steel structures with zinc and zinc with aluminum. We prepare surface for metallization by shot blasting to receive a surface which is suitable for metallization.

Spray metallization

What is spray metallization?
It is primarily a professional protection of large-size structures against the harmful effects of moisture. Zinc spray metallization consists in applying a specialized anti-corrosion coating to the selected steel element to be protected, it is this coating that will protect the material for a long period of time, and thus will be a solid protection and will be an effective protection against unwanted corrosion.

What is the spray metallization process?
As the name suggests, spray metallization is the application of an anti-corrosion layer by spraying, previously heated to the melting point of the selected metal, in our case zinc, on the selected element to be protected. As a result, a coherent and long-lasting protective layer of the metal is created.

Advantages of zinc spray metallization
The most important advantage of zinc spray metallization is the complete protection of large elements against corrosion. Thanks to this technique, we can protect almost every machine, every static element, practically everything from unwanted actions. In addition, the entire process protects the protected element against various types of scratches, scratches or other small damages that reduce the value of our goods. We can safely say that this action is necessary if you want to extend the life of metal objects.

Where is zinc spray metallization used?
Spray metallization is used to protect large, static elements which, due to their large size, cannot be hot-dip or electro-galvanized. Colloquially speaking, spray metallization applies to elements that, due to their large size, cannot be immersed in a large bathtub filled to the brim with liquid metal.
