English term or phrase: gun
With the development of wire arc spray technology in the 1960's, it became possible to apply a wide variety of metal coatings to surfaces as thin as 1/8". Commonly known as metalizing, this process feeds wire through a gun that melts it and sprays it onto the part to be coated. These coatings are crack-free and less expensive. Stainless steel alloys are most often used when wear resistance is required. Although it can be applied as thick as 1/4", metalizing wears about twice as quickly as the un-cracked subarc weld and five times faster than the cracked sub-arc weld. It has only slightly better life than the original flame-hardened cast iron, but its wear resistance stays uniform throughout the coating. It makes a good low-cost option for less severe wear applications, and can be used for drawing very large diameter wires without cracking or chipping out.
