Pagination or Media Count:
Thermal spraying of steel with aluminum to protect it from corrosion is a technology that has been proven to work in the marine environment. The thermal spray coating system includes a paint sealer that is applied over the thermally sprayed aluminum this extends the service life of the coating, and provides color to the end product. The thermal spray system protects steel both through the principle of isolation as in painting and galvanization as in galvanizing . With this dual protection mechanism, steel is protected from corrosion even when the coating is damaged.
