Abstract : The plasma-arc spray process has demonstrated potential as a material deposition method for the aerospace industry. Current applications involving the use of the plasma-arc spray technique are presented and their feasibilities discussed. The principal areas considered are coatings, including oxidation, wear, and erosion resistant, temperature control, and lubrication applications, fabrication of refractory metal shapes, plasms fusion surfacing, and controlled environment spraying.
