Reason for use:
To prevent external surface corrosion
Heat resistant surfaces produced by the metal spraying process have many applications; the photograph shows a rather unusual variation of this theme.
Two independent exhaust systems, fabricated from steel tube in the Ford GT.40 sports car, have been metal sprayed with 175 microns (0.007”) of aluminium using the latest Metallisation Fine spray electric arc techniques.
The treatment has been found to be fully effective in overcoming the extremes of heat oxidation and thermal shock from the output of this high performance engine.
