    its actually called plasma spray. there are also different processes that we do. its metal in either a wire form or powder form. wire is driven through the gun that the operator holds or that is held robotically then with an arc and different gasses it melts the metal and turns it molten. with metal powder the powder is force fed in a controlled rate to the gun. with extreamly hi pressure air and gasses to creat volicity thats how adheasion or bond strength is achieved. also every part is grit blasted with the proper grit to acheave the proper surface roughness to aid in the bond strength. is aerospace stuff, customers pay thousands of dollors to have there parts coated. the volocity that comes out the end of the gun is any where from mach2 to mach4, thats thousands of mile per hour. the heat of the flame is in the 3000 to 5000 F range and we can if required spray up to 30.000 deg F. rarely is this required though.
    we can maintain a part surface temp of just 300 deg or less though to minimize distortion. in the garage under the thread grit blasted and zink coated my 14ff, this is the process that we used to do this.
