Materials for Advanced Coating Solutions



Cored Wire Advantages

Materials for Advanced Coating SolutionsPraxair and TAFA are the thermal spray leaders in the development and manufacture of cored wires for electric arc spray. Advanced materials engineering allows compositions that cannot be drawn as solid wires to be produced by enclosing powders in a metallic sheath.

Application of cored wire technology has resulted in arc spray coatings replacing flame spray and plasma coating for industrial wear applications due to the high buildup rates, ease of machining and superior wear characteristics of the coatings.
