Thermal Spray Coatings

The Paragon Protective Coatings (PPC) Ltd. thermal spray process is the most effective way to apply metallized coatings

Onsite Thermal Spray Services

Our thermal spray coating service produces surface coating solutions which extend the life of components within the oil & gas, petrochemical, utilities and infrastructure industries.

Industry Leaders in Metalized Coatings to Increase Component Life

PPC offers cost effective solutions to increase protection against extreme corrosion or wear environments.

Thermal spray coatings (sometimes referred to as “metallizing”, “metallized coatings” or “spray welding”) are a family of coating processes that apply metallic (or occasionally non-metallic) materials to components requiring protection. Molten droplets of metal are propelled toward the surface, building up fine layers of the coating until the desired thickness is achieved.

Thermal spray coatings differ from traditional coatings (paints, epoxies etc) in that they offer higher temperature resistance, superior corrosion and wear resistance, and a longer life. Coating materials can be selected for extreme industrial environments, atmospheric corrosion, or for purely decorative reasons.

Thermal spray coatings may be applied in the shop using manual or automated processes, or manually in the field. Smaller components that can easily transported are coated within our shop facilities, and may be placed in our automated cells if appropriate. Larger components/structures may be coated in our shops, within your facility, or even at the end-user/client site.

Paragon Protective Coatings Ltd. chosen thermal spray processes offer;

  • high alloy deposition rates,
  • high-density (no through porosity) coatings,
  • tailored coating thicknesses (0.005” to 0.040”),
  • mechanical bonds,
  • exceptional coating reproducibility,
  • inside diameter (ID) capability,
  • flexibility for application in the field/on-site.

These process characteristics, and a diverse range of coating materials, make Paragon Protective Coatings Ltd. a leading force in the on-site thermal spray coating market. We offer a single-source solution for your industrial, infrastructure, or architectural coating needs.

PPC’s strategic selection of metalizing equipment and materials, high-quality workmanship, and skilled supervision ensure thermal spray project safety, quality, cost, and schedule objectives are met.
