Application of a wear resistant coating

Surface finishing using the laser metal disposition (LMD) process

A novel super hydrophobic coating developed at TWI

The TWI coating team developed the coating using functionalised silica nanoparticles (Water contact angle of 150° on glass)

Robot mounted HVOF spraying of an automotive cylinder head

Thermal spraying can be used to deposit metals, cermets (such as WC-Co), ceramics, polymers in layers typically 60 μm to 10 mm thick, for a wide range of engineering applications
