The electrical and thermal conductivity of cold spray coatings can
reach more than 90 per cent of the raw material.
In the computer industry, for example, thin copper coatings on heat sinks for processors help dicipate heat.
In the semiconductor industry, the electrical conductivity of cold sprayed parts is a well-established application.
Worn out components made of aluminum, magnesium or titanium alloys are
The cold gas technology offers advantages in the repair process when thicker coats are necessary eliminating process heat distortion.
In the OEM-field the cold gas technology offers the possibility to manufacture complex engine components cost-effectively.
During the casting of engine blocks, fine cracks may form. Because of
these defects, blocks may have to be scrapped.
The fine cracks can be repaired by a cold gas coating cost-effectively without shortening the service life of the engine.
With the shortage of resources, energy generation is the main focus of
Whether we consider electrical conductivity of cold gas coatings or the possibility to repair engines, the cold gas technology contributes innovative solutions to many of these areas.
