Cold Spray Rebuilding, Repairs & Industrial Applications
Cold spray coatings can provide surface enhancement for a wide range of industries and applications to repair and refurbish worn or damaged components, returning them to their original dimensions. Cold spray rebuilding and repair of industrial application products is an effective and cost-saving alternative to replacing worn parts. More durable materials can be applied over the original substrate to enhance the performance of refurbished parts and to extend their working life.
Cold Spray Repair Industrial Advantages
Cold spray technology may be an ideal method for restoring damaged metal parts and components in industrial equipment. Unlike welding and many other repair processes, cold spray repair is efficient. Cold spray repair also does not cause thermal stress, which can further damage fragile parts.
Additionally, adding a solid layer of high performance material over the part’s original material of construction is an effective way to improve equipment performance, without the expense of new part production. Manufacturing entire parts from these specialty materials can be very expensive, making cold spray repair an excellent cost-saving option.
Further Advantages of Cold Spray Repair Include:
- Ease of scalability from the coupon level
- Reduced waste thanks to salvaged defective parts and reclaimed field-returned parts
Furthermore, cold spray can be used to repair wear, erosion, corrosion, cavitation, and other forms of damage.
Cold Spray Repair Applications
Parts and components for a wide array of industries and applications can be effectively repaired using cold spray technology. Examples include:
- Sputter targets
- Braze layers
- Magnesium substrates
- Conductive layers
- Additive manufacturing

Cold Spray Industrial Applications
Cold Spray is helping to advance a variety of industries. These sectors place high demands on the mechanical, physical and chemical properties of materials. Since corrosion and material fatigue constitute a high risk potential, Cold Spray has been used to coat aluminum components that are subjected to dynamically high corrosion and possibly high stresses. This enhancement makes high-performance functional surfaces and commercially viable repair methods more accessible than ever.
ASB Industries uses their expertise in Cold Spray to work cooperatively with research and laboratory facilities regarding production, equipment, and parameter development.
- Aerospace and Defense
- Large Part Production
- Coating Development
- Additive Manufacturing Projects
