Hybrid coating

« Back to Glossary Index

Some polymer coatings benefit from (and in some cases, need) a metal or ceramic base layer on top of the part to be coated. Usually applied by the arc spray or flame spray method, this plasma layer will at the least provide an enhanced surface profile for the polymer to bond to. In some cases, the plasma layer will improve the lifespan of the polymer by reducing wear or fatigue.
