Plasma Coating

Out of all the services offered at Aerofab, the plasma coatings continue to be one of the most requested by our customers, and for good reason. The plasma spray provides superior protection against wear and corrosion to enhance and extend the life of your engineering and welding parts.

HVOF Coating

High velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) is often applied to rough surfaces to resist abrasion and corrosion. An HVOF coat creates an incredibly hard surface on the substrate. With Aerofab’s HVOF coating services, you can take full advantage of your equipment’s capabilities.

Hard Coat Anodizing

Hard coat anodizing, also known as modified hard coating or hard anodizing, is a process that creates a hard surface strong enough to resist corrosion and abrasion. In fact, the strength and hardness of hard anodizing can be compared to that of a diamond.

Thermal Barrier Coatings

Thermal barrier coatings (TBC) are applied to metallic surfaces to provide insulation when operating at high temperatures as a type of exhaust heat management. Common aerospace applications include gas turbines and engine parts.

Abradable Coating

Abradable coating is an economical way to improve the efficiency of engines, compressors and pumps. The abradable material is applied when minimal clearance is needed between the blade tips and the casing.
The benefits of an abradable coating from Aerofab include:

  • resistance to oxidation
  • resistance to impact
  • resistance to thermal shock
  • durable internal strength
  • reduced fuel consumption
