Preperation

The surface to be treated is first sandblasted. Then wire is fed automatically through the nozzle of the spray gun. A combustible gas, oxygen, and compressed air serve to melt and blow the atomized metal against the surface to be coated. The preferred gas is acetylene although other gasses can be used. For corrosion protection primarily zinc or aluminum is used. Zinc or aluminum, powerful anodes, on steel or iron create a cathodic or galvanic effect that resists corrosion. Rust cannot spread and blister your paint even if the paint, primer, and metallized coating are scratched, all the way through into the iron.

Processing

 

In this process, metals, alloys, or ceramics are deposited on metallic or other surfaces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finished Product

The object may be to build up worn or undersize parts, provide wear-resisting or corrosion-resisting surfaces, correct defective castings, etc. Zincnation specializes in corrosion-resistance. Testing has shown that metallizing can resist corrosion, especially rust on iron, for 20+ years. A metallized surface is ideal to paint and the two coatings provide significantly longer protection when combined. The U.S. military and commercial aircraft industries have depended on metal spraying for decades.
