Types of Coatings

We provide surface engineering for extreme environments


Severe Operating Environments

Monitor provides a wide range of coatings and surface engineering disciplines to combat various chemical, physical and mechanical environments which include:

  • Wear Resistant,
  • Corrosion Resistant,
  • Rub Tolerant,
  • Thermal Barrier and abradable coatings,
  • Abrasion Resistant Coatings
  • Ceramic Coatings
  • Corrosion Resistant Coatings
  • Flame Spray Coatings
  • Industrial Coatings
  • Metal Spray Coatings
  • Thermal Spray Coatings
  • Wear Resistant Coatings
  • Wire Spray Coatings
  • HVOF Coatings
  • Plasma Coatings
  • Low Pressure Plasma Spraying (LPPS)
  • Slurry Coatings

There are literally thousands of coatings capable of being deposited using a thermal spray technique. There are a number of considerations to be made when selecting the most appropriate coating, amongst these are:

A) Function or Purpose of Coating
B) Part & Substrate Constraints
C) Environmental Considerations (service environment & production)

Types of Coatings & Applications

Function or Purpose of Coating:

  • Wear and or corrosion resistance
  • Thermal insulation or conduction
  • Electrical insulation or conduction
  • Electronic function
  • Magnetic properties
  • Optical properties
  • Dimensional restoration

Part & Substrate Constraints

  • Size and shape of the part
  • Risk of distortion of thin or delicate parts through heat or residual stresses
  • Need for masking
  • Effect of coating on component performance (reduced fatigue resistance or galvanic coupling)
  • Effect of part on coating performance (mechanical support during impact or wear loads) due to mechanical or thermal loading.

Environmental Considerations (service environment & production)

  • Ambient air
  • High temperature or gasses
  • Other fluids
  • Fresh or salt water
  • Other Chemicals
