BASF: Thermal Spray Coatings

basf_logoBASF Surface Technologies offers a selection of thermal spray coating solutions that can increase the life and improve the performance of pumps and valves.

BASF thermal spray coatings are hard, wear resistant overlays that can impede erosion and corrosion. Significant life extension can be realized even under challenging conditions. These dense coatings can be finished to a 4 -16 microinch Ra, creating a tight seal.

The typical overlay process can distort the workpiece and require post-heat treatment to restore substrate hardness. With BASF coatings, no corrective finishing is needed because BASF thermal spray processes do not raise the temperature above 300 degrees F.

The superior performance of pumps and valves coated with one of BASF Surface Technologies thermal spray coatings can help to increase productivity, decrease downtime and reduce maintenance costs.
