Twin Wire Arc Jet At Altamont Spray Welding we have had many years of experience applying Twin wire Arc Jet coatings on
hundreds of applications using a number of materials. Including copper, bronze, aluminum, steel, stainless steel, nickel, zinc,
and over 20 different alloys. These arc jet-sprayed materials are used in many applications including: Wear resistance,
electrical conductivity, corrosion protection, parts restoration, bonding and more. Most materials can be applied in the
field as well as in our shop.


BEFORE AND AFTER TWIN WIRE ARC JET



Piston from a sludge pump twin wire arc jet coated and machined to restore factory tolerances    
 
Here are a few examples of the most common materials used and the applications they are used for
Material rc hardness Characteristics
Carbide - 97MXC 64-69 RC 74-79 RC
(with nitrogen arc jet)
Provides superior wear and erosion resistance to fine particle abrasion. Applications:
Pump Impellers, housing and shafts, Hoppers, tanks, transfer chutes or anything that is exposed to a harsh abrasive environment.
Aluminum Bronze -10T 95 RB Abronze type alloy that has a low coefficient of friction.
Self bonding, resistance to corrosion, mechanical and thermal shock
300 Series Stainless Steel - 88T 93-97 RB A high chromium alloy with outstanding resistance to abrasive wear. Applications:
Pump sleeves, bearing areas, seal areas, sewage pump pistons
Aluminum - 01T 72 RB An aluminum base alloy.
Applications:
Aluminum bell housings for electric motors. Example: Worn bearing bore
Zinc - 02Z 60-73 RB A zinc alloy that provides protection for iron and steel against galvanic corrosion.
Example: Waterless conveyer frames, steel, iron structures and potable water tanks.
Chrome Steel 13% 60T 40-43 RC Excellent wear quality low shrink used for build up of badly worn parts.
