Thermal Spraying Technology and Applications
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents an overview of thermal spray technology and discusses thermal spray coating materials, processes, specifications, selection, surface preparation, application, inspection and testing, sealing, maintenance, and safety. This course will help readers to understand the different surface coating techniques for enhancing service life of their assets, boosting productivity and capacity of their machinery.


Most manufacturing and industrial equipments suffer heavy wear rates owing to their service conditions. Thermal spray coatings impart high-quality wear resistant properties to the base metal, which the base materials do not necessarily have. Thermal spraying is a surface coating technology by which metallic or nonmetallic materials are deposited in a molten or semi-molten condition onto a base metal surface to optimize its characteristics and to protect against wear, abrasion, corrosion and/or erosion. Numerous combinations of base material and coating material are possible.


This 4 PDH  online course is aimed at mechanical engineers, process engineers, facility managers, operational and maintenance personnel responsible for design and upkeep of equipment.
