What: Announcing the publication of the book titled “Art, Architecture and Thermal Spray” and the launch of an accompanying campaign to promote the use of thermal spray in art, architecture and conservation.
Who: Peter Foy, President of Plasma Powders & Systems, Inc., commissioned and published the book. Plasma Powders & Systems, Inc. will serve as a cultural and technical resource promoting the use of thermal spray as an art and architectural medium and preservative through demonstrations, exhibits, education and collaboration. The company will provide direction and assistance to artists, architects, college and university administrators, community and business development organizations, studios, museums, galleries, restoration and preservation providers and the general public.
Why This Is Significant: Thermal spray is a developing method for creating and conserving art and architecture. This is the first book developed by the industry for the purpose of educating the public, artists, architects, businesses and conservationists about the enormous benefits of thermal spray in the arts, architecture and conservation.
Background: Thermal spray is a process in which metals, ceramics and plastics, originating as either fine powders or wires, are sprayed onto a surface after being heated to their melting point by an electric arc, plasma or a combustion flame. Once applied, the resultant “skin” can be ground, or polished and burnished, then sealed with a patina finish or left au naturel.
Traditionally, the main use of thermal spray was to restore worn surfaces or to provide protection to another material. Today, we benefit daily from thermal spray. Our homes are secured, our transportation modes run efficiently, our utilities provide reliable energy and our bodies are healed through the many applications using thermal spray that are often invisible.
For the artist and architect, thermal spray is a new tool that enables artisans to economically create durable shapes and finishes not possible in the past, offering unlimited opportunities for discovery and creation. For the conservator, thermal spray serves as a preservative of art and architecture from the ravages of time and decay.
You have identified a Thermal Spray coating that creates a better product and increases market share and profit… Now what?
What do you need to successfully implement a complete Thermal Spray process?
Do you have the expertise to design the right system that won’t delay (or worse, erase) the savings you’re supposed to realize by using this technology?
Questions to ask yourself:
- Do I call the first paid advertiser on Google?
- Will one of the Thermal Spray “giants” give me the most optimal, cost effective solution OR try to make my application fit one of their canned system packages?
- Can I accomplish the same goal with a quality, lower priced system?
- Should I use wire or powder material? Liquid fuel, gas or electric systems?
- Do I need a spray booth, spray room, acoustic isolation? How much dust collection is required?
- Will automated application and part handling effectively offset labor and material costs?
- Where do I get training and support when I need it?
- How many different suppliers will I have to manage to get the job done right?
