High-velocity arc spraying technique is a widely used traditional spraying technology [14-16], which utilizes an electric arc as a heat source to melt wires into droplets, which are sprayed onto the substrate by high-velocity compressed air.
It covers electing surface-treatment technologies, stainless austenitic steel, thin film technology, plastics including PVD, thermal CVD hard-material coating, hot-filament CVD diamond thin films, electrodeposition and other plating processes, thermal spraying, flame and arc spraying, spray materials, high-velocity oxygen fuel flame spraying, a plasma spray system, diagnostics in thermal spraying, sol-gel and hot-dip coatings, built-up brazed-wear coatings, applications of coating processes in brazing technology, surface protection through build-up welding, and non-destructive testing and assessment of coatings.
It also has a proprietary nonstick surface whose application does not involve arc spraying, making it smoother and more durable than competitors,' he contended.
