INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY

Our Process

We’ve got coating down to a science.

SAVE TIME AND MONEY

Machine parts, no matter how well maintained they are, break down over time. APS can revive worn down parts back into spec at a fraction of the cost of replacing it, typically within two weeks. Due to our high-quality materials and processes, coated parts outperform a new counterpart in most instances. Production castings with overbored holes or those shafts with under-size bearing surfaces can have another chance to be machined to spec. APS can use hard-facing instead of distortion-causing heat to provide a better surface for sensitive parts. We repair corrosion in pumps and valves with linings and patch reactor kettles and mixers. Save on material costs by discovering the best solution for your material repair needs.

PROTECTION THAT LASTS

APS Materials earned the trust of many industries, providing the highest quality implant coatings in the world. Seven out of the top ten global medical manufacturers turn to APS for our services. With over forty years of experience, our engineers have the experience necessary to provide quality solutions in the spray coatings industry. We provide services to enhance and protect orthopedic implants made of titanium, cobalt chrome, pyrocarbon, ceramic, and PEEK. Our headquarters in Dayton, Ohio is a 50,000 square-foot facility with 42,000 square feet of dedicated production space. We have facilities in Waterford, Ireland and Suzhou, China. APS employs ten vacuum spray chambers and over fifteen automated production coating spray cells to meet your production timelines.

The Arc Plasma Process: In-Depth

Uniform Coatings

Using the arc-plasma spray process, we can deliver durable, consistent coatings every time. This method uses a blazing hot gas plasma to melt a particulate material and transfer it to a substrate, where the material solidifies and becomes a powerful coating.

Perfect Delivery

Downstream from the arc, we use a carrier gas to inject powder and mix it with the plasma. When the powder melts, it is carried at the gas velocity to the substrate where it quenches and bonds to form a dense coating.

Powerful Bond

This versatile process utilizes both thermal and kinetic energy to provide the high bond strength associated with plasma spray coatings. The result is a high-quality, wear-resistant coating suitable for a variety of substrates. APS provides the best coatings available to protect and restore your equipment.
