The practical uses of Cold Spray are growing to the point where the technology is beginning to enter the Aerospace and Defense market as a solution distinct from thermal spray. The MIL Spec (MIL-STD-3021 DOD Manufacturing Process Standard, Materials Deposition, Cold Spray) has been adopted throughout the world and the number of aerospace-qualified repair procedures are growing.

Cold Spray technology will move into the marketplace much more quickly and smoothly if users, spray shops, equipment, and powder suppliers work together to share information, develop the engineering data and match the technology to the best applications.

What is Cold Spray?
