Event Title

Session 03: Application of Cold Spray Technology in Aviation Industry

Presenter Information

Koh Pak Keng

Synopsis

Cold spray technology is an emerging additive coating process that uses high velocity (kinetic energy) impact as its coating mechanism. With its unique working principle, the coating produced has numerous advantages over conventional thermal spray processes such as high density, low oxide content and minimal or no change in microstructure of the coating. Its distinctiveness presents immense opportunity in providing a new platform to address wear, erosion, corrosion and environmental attack issues. The presentation will provide an introduction to cold spray technology and discuss the principles of cold spray bonding mechanism. Studies showing how the various factors affect the cold spray coating quality will also be presented. Key cold spray applications in the aviation industry will also be highlighted.
