TMetal is Canada’s leading producer of metal powders for a range of manufacturing technologies. Whether you want to achieve corrosion resistance, mechanical strength, wear-resistance, erosion resistance or resistance to high temperature, our thermal spraying and welding powders can help achieve the desired results.
We offer powders for the following surface coating technologies:
Plasma transferred arc (PTA) is a thermal coating process wherein the powder is applied through metallurgical bonding (welding). The PTA process is applied for applying corrosion-resistant and wear-resistant coatings on the base material.
Given that the process involves a high level of automation, it is most suited for series parts and its advantages include high reproducibility, low dilution rate, high powder utilisation and a limitless possibility of material combinations.
We offer a range of cobalt-based and nickel-based powders for the PTA process.
The laser cladding process involves heating the workpiece using laser beam while hardfacing powders are passed through the heat and melted on the base material.
The laser cladding technique bonds alloys to the base material with an exceptionally low degree of dilution. The automated process that’s characterized by a superior consistency is especially suited for high volume automated processes.
Given that the process achieves thinner layers, it helps reduce material costs.
Whether you are looking for a powder that’s equivalent to Stellite 6, 12 or 21 or Deloro 22, 40 or 50, we offer a wide range of powders to suit your laser cladding application.
Short for High-Velocity Oxygen Fuel, HVOF is a thermal spray coating process that helps improve a component’s surface dimensions or properties thereby extending its life by dramatically increasing wear, corrosion and erosion resistance.
Benefits of HVOF coating include improved performance, reduced costs, improved electrical properties, improved efficiency and improved life of mating components.
Whether you are looking for cobalt-based, nickel-based or carbide powders, we have you covered with our extensive range of metal powders for the HVOF process.
TMetal offers high-quality pure powder that boasts excellent flow characteristics, high density and high temperature strength.
An economical, safe alternative to lead powder, pure tungsten powder is suited for 3D printing, aerospace, oil and gas industries and high purity materials. Combined with our experience, expertise and careful analysis for each production, our pure powder will ensure your product boasts consistent performance and your customers benefit from high levels of efficiency.
