Air Plasma Spray (APS)
PAS Technologies operates an air plasma spray (APS) system using an Argon/Hydrogen gas mixture combusted in either an F4, 3MB or 9MB guns manipulated by robot/turntable combination to provide 8 axes of relative movement between the component and gun. APS coatings are used typically to apply abradable, wear resistant or thermal barrier coatings (TBC), with each coating having it’s own unique property.
TBC’s contain a blend of Zr, Y, Ti and are used to resist oxidation, abrasion, sliding wear, high temperature corrosion, and provide thermal insulation or electrical protection.
