Metallizing & Flame Spray

Stainless Steel, Bronze, Ceramic, & Tungsten Carbide Sprays

Metallizing & Flame Spray Advantages

  • Stainless Steel Spray
    Stainless Steel Metallizing is most commonly used for repairing and re-building: journals, seal areas, roll bodies and bores.  It can be applied in upwards of .080" thickness.  Mexicali Hard Chrome offers 420 and 430 stainless steel as well as a soft stainless that can be machined.  However, Mexicali Hard Chrome can apply other series stainless steels and materials, such as bronze and ceramic upon request.
     
  • Bronze Spray
    This is a very soft spray that has a yellowish color that is used a lot in the repairs of water pumps. Good against corrosion resistance.
     
  • Ceramic Spray
    Very, very hard material that is applied to areas that need to have a surface that will hold up to some very heavy wear conditions.
     
  • Tungsten Carbide Spray

    Tungsten carbide is a chemical carbide containing equal parts of tungsten and carbon atoms. It is approximately twice as strong as steel with double the density and is double the density of steel—nearly midway between that of lead and gold. Tungsten Carbide’s hardness level is comparable with corundum and can only be polished and finished with abrasives of superior hardness such as cubic boron nitride and diamond powder, wheels, and compounds.
