Ace Precision is a proven leader in the thermal spray coatings industry, utilizing state-of-the-art robotic technology to consistently and accurately meet a wide variety of industry and customer standards. Our 3D modeling software, computerized controllers, 6-axis robots, and auxiliary axis coordinated motion turntables meticulously control the process inputs/outputs.
Ace Precision has extensive experience with a wide variety of thermal spray coating applications, including ceramic thermal barrier, abradable seal, high and low temperature hard coats, and metal spray surface restoration. Methods utilized for applying these coatings are plasma, combustion powder and combustion wire. Outputs of the coating process are validated through our in-house metallographic laboratory which continuously monitors coating quality, providing real-time analysis of production demand, new part and/or process development, and engineering projects. All of Ace Precision’s engineered coating processes are Nadcap accredited and OEM customer source approved.
Ace Precision applies advanced thermal barrier coatings to metallic surfaces that operate at elevated temperatures. Thermal barrier coatings are a two-layer process, consisting of a metallic bond coat followed by a ceramic topcoat. Together, the coating resists oxidation and has excellent thermal insulation properties, extending the life of engine components. Typical range of coating thicknesses are .003″ to .008″ on the bond coat and .010″ to .018″ on the ceramic topcoat.
Ace Precision applies thermal sprayed abradable seal coating to protect metallic part surfaces for clearance control and sealing between mating components. Abradable seal coating is a two-layer coating process, consisting of a metallic bond coat followed by an aluminum polyester topcoat. Typical range of coating thicknesses are .003″ to .006″ on the bond coat and .050″ to .100″ on the aluminum polyester topcoat.
Ace Precision applies nickel aluminide coating to provide excellent bond strength and high resistance to oxidation and corrosion on metallic components used in high temperature applications. This single coating application is optimal for restoring worn or damaged surfaces to original blueprint tolerance. Utilizing nickel aluminide coating saves the cost of having to replace high-dollar components. Typical range of coating thickness is up to .200″.
Ace Precision applies carbide coatings to protect metallic surfaces from fretting, abrasive wear, erosion, and cavitation. Carbide coatings are hard, dense coatings that are extremely durable. They have excellent oxidation and corrosion resistant properties. Typical range of coating thickness is up to .015″.
