What is Arc Spray Metalizing? Arc Spray (most often referred to as metalizing, TSA, TSZ, TWAS and even spray welding) is the most productive and economical of all thermal spray coating systems that is an anticorrosive treatment for structural steel. Arc Spray uses DC power to energize two conductive wires: one positive and the other negative. These energized wires are then fed through a feeder into a gun head. It is at the gun head that the wires meet and arc against each other, thus creating molten material.
Then, ordinary dry compressed air is introduced to the arc zone, this atomizing the molten material into tiny droplets while also propelling then toward the prepared part. As the droplets hit the work piece or part, they flatten out and make splats. The splats interlock one on top another to create a extremely strong mechanical bond.
