flame spraying

[′flām ‚sprā·iŋ]
(engineering)
A method of applying a plastic coating onto a surface in which finely powdered fragments of the plastic, together with suitable fluxes, are projected through a cone of flame.
Deposition of a conductor on a board in molten form, generally through a metal mask or stencil, by means of a spray gun that feeds wire into a gas flame and drives the molten particles against the work.

First, the surface of steel 45 substrates was rinsed with acetone and roughened by spraying corundum; second, the steel T8 coating was applied on the roughened substrates by flame spraying (the pressures of oxygen and acetylene were 294-588 kPa and 49-98 kPa, respectively); then, the steel T8 coating was dipped with polysiloxane at room temperature for one to four hours.
The flame spraying process oxidizes the EMAA copolymer during processing.
Until recently the performance limitations of existing metal and ceramic metals have been tolerated due to the lack of an application technology suitable for applying high performance polymer coatings via flame spraying. However, a new game-changing application process has recently been announced.
Flame spraying. Thermal spraying using the heat from a chemical reaction is called flame spraying.
The simplest system is combustion flame spraying. For this, a hand-held spray gun uses gases such as oxy-acetylene to give flame temperatures up to 3100 degrees C.
