Thermal spraying has evolved from a technology designed to be a cost effective method of repairing worn components and machined parts to a process used to provide improved part performance and add longer life to components. As the thermal spray profession has changed, so has the need to ensure safe and consistent methods for thermal spray operators. Leaders in the Thermal Spray Society were brought together to compile their knowledge and experience in a comprehensive, easy to understand course.
