Flame spraying removes barriers to in-the-field powder coating
Powder coatings have long provided an environmentally friendly, high-performance method of coating parts in a shop. But what about powder coating in the field? It's impossible to powder coat large objects that can't be removed and put into an oven - or is it?
Flame spraying is a method of powder application that removes these barriers to powder mobility, making it possible to use thermoplastic polymers in the field. This article describes the flame-spraying process, as well as environmental considerations and applications.
