standard by American Welding Society, 2013
This standard defines requirements for thermal spray coating systems for OEM and repair applications. Included are HVOF (High Velocity Oxygen Fuel) coatings that can be used as an alternative to hard chrome plating. The essential equipment, procedures for surface preparation, and the application of specific thermal spray coatings and sealers are detailed with in-process quality control checkpoints.
This standard also presents management requirements and procedures for qualification, procedure approval, and documentation. Also covered are approved applications for thermal spray processes used for OEM and repair of machinery components alsong with minimum training requirements fo rthermal spray operators and inspectors.
