Research Trends in Cold Spray
from Dr. Karthi

Can Ultra Pure Metallic Coatings be applied using Liquid Suspensions or Precursors?

The process jet will atomize and evaporate either liquid suspension or precursor droplets to produce pure metallic nano-particles. But will these particles impact and adhere to the substrate to produce coatings or just get washed away due to bow shock? In the 1990's during the Post Doc studies at New York Stony Brook University, liquid spray technique was initially tested using Plasma and Flame Spray, which showed lack of coherent and a well bonded coating. It was postulated that the in-situ formed nano-particle does not have enough time to heat and melt for producing the spray splats. However, due to design advancements, good quality coatings of several microns thick are now routinely produced by Plasma Spraying of liquids. Advances in cold spray equipment have shown positive results for many new materials using high pressure systems. In the near future, liquid feedstock will be a technique for producing cold spray coatings.

Operating "Tech Tips"
From Helmut

Obtaining Consistent Powder Flow in
High Pressure Systems
Impact Innovations High Pressure Cold Spray Equipment
  • Measure for leaks in the powder line with the integrated test feature; leaks bigger than 0.3 Nm³/h will affect the feeding as well as feed rate volume and pulsing.
  • Feedstock powders with flow ability worse than 60 seconds significantly affects the feed rate and consistency. To portion the powder with 50 CC cup will help.
  • Preheat powder approximately 24 hours prior to spraying and remove all unused powder from the feeder canister at the end of the production day.
Excerpt from ASM Handbook 5A on
Thermal Spray-Cold Spray Process


Dr. J. Karthikeyan has contributed to the 2013 2nd
Edition of the ASM International

Handbook Series-Thermal Spray Technology-ISBN-10: 1-61503-996-1.

Recently released for worldwide distribution this 2nd edition Handbook is a vast and complete collection of world authors related to thermal spray surfacing technologies.The efforts were directed and edited by our colleague, Dr. Robert Tucker.
Dr. Karthikeyan' original chapter in the first edition was revised showing advances in applications, equipment and research related to Cold Spray technology.
