This extensively updated and revised version builds on the success of the first edition featuring new discoveries in powder technology, spraying techniques, new coatings applications and testing techniques for coatings — Many new spray techniques are considered that did not exist when the first edition was published!

The book begins with coverage of materials used, pre-spray treatment, and the techniques used. It then leads into the physics and chemistry of spraying and discusses coatings build-up. Characterization methods and the properties of the applied coatings are presented, and the book concludes with a lengthy chapters on thermal spray applications covers such areas as the aeronautics and space, automobiles, ceramics, chemicals, civil engineering, decorative coatings, electronics, energy generation and transport, iron and steel, medicine, mining and the nuclear industries.

Editorial Reviews

A comprehensive description of the technology of thermal spraying as used in academic research and industrial production. Begins with discussions of manufacturing and testing the powder and pre- spray treatment, then details the most important techniques currently being used and still under development, and finally outlines post-spraying treatments such as mechanical finishing, high pressure and temperature treatment, and laser treatment. Considers such aspects as the physics of thermal spraying, heating the solid particles in the flames, problems related to coatings build up, the microstructure testing of mechanical and physical properties, processing parameters, and applications in such industries as aeronautics, printing, and electronics.
