WHY MBI PLASMA?
At MBI we apply advanced plasma-spray coatings on your surfaces to meet application requirements regarding wear, release, heat, corrosion, oxidation or other properties.
We utilize industry proven high energy Plasma spray systems (Sulzer Metco 3MB, 7MB and 9MB) for the deposition of various metallic & ceramic coatings.
There are materials such as ceramics that require tremendous amount of energy to soften and transform into a desired coating. Such materials to be deposited (which come in powder form) are heated in the plasma stream at temperatures around 16,500° C and subsequently sprayed at Mach 2 speeds onto the surface to be coated.
The inherent versatility and control of the process permits the deposition of a wide variety of spray materials including metals, alloys, ceramics (oxides, carbides) and cermets. Such coatings offer excellent properties for abrasion, high temperature, corrosion, electrical conductivity, EMI shielding, release properties, repair of worn parts and more!
Nearly any material may be plasma sprayed, and since the substrate temperature can be properly controlled to stay below 250°F, there’s no fear of overheating that causes warping or deformation to the part being coated.
