Improving Thermal Spray Consumable Life

Do you think your thermal spray consumables SHOULD or COULD last longer?         Consider first the copper that the thermal spray consumables are made from. There are thousands of copper alloys that can affect the life of a thermal spray consumable. The copper can be pure copper or a copper/tungsten alloy. Each manufacture of consumables chooses the type of copper they wish to use. For instance, the JP5000 HVOF barrels are typically made of C145 copper (tellurium) with a Rockwell B harness of 48 and ... Read more

Getting More Life From Thermal Spray Consumables

4 Ways To Make Your Consumables Last Longer 1. Consider the copper from which the consumable is made: There are thousands of copper alloys that can affect the life of a consumable. Each manufacturer uses different materials and the copper can be pure copper or one of many copper/tungsten alloys. For instance, the JP5000 HVOF barrels are typically made of C145 copper (tellurium) with a Rockwell B harness of 48 and a thermal conductivity of 205. If you want longer lasting barrels, consider chrome copper a much ... Read more
