Thermal Coatings

With its thermal spray technology, STI Group offers a cost-effective process which makes it possible to use and combine a great variety of materials. Thermal spray coatings are suitable for metallic base materials as well as for lightweight construction components. The process produces thick coating layers with excellent fatigue resistence, low surface roughness, favorable internal stress behavior, a high oxygen content and good adhesion to the base material. 

Different thermal coating processes

STI Group offers the HVOF (High Velocity Oxygen Fuel) process as standard at the Steinach facility. Furthermore, the company offers the following thermal coating processes on request: plasma spraying, combustion wire spraying, electric arc spraying and powder flame spraying.
