Thermal spraying is an industrial coating process that consists of using a heat source (flame or otherwise) and a coating material in powder or wire form, which is melted into tiny droplets and sprayed onto surfaces at high velocity.

Thermal spray coatings can be utilized to protect workpieces from severe corrosion, high temperatures, chemicals, environmental abrasion, and other hazards.

They are also used to impart electrical insulation or conductivity, oxidation resistance, and a number of other performance improvements.
