Diffusion Alloy
Diffusion alloy is a layer of intermetallic (single phase) compound(s) formed by the addition of elements to the surface of a part under controlled conditions of temperature, time and atmosphere, and the simultaneous reaction of those elements with that surface
Diffusion alloy is a layer of intermetallic (single phase) compound(s) formed by the addition of elements to the surface of a part under controlled conditions of temperature, time and atmosphere, and the simultaneous reaction of those elements with that surface. Elements from the part and the added elements combine to form the new material, which in reality is not a "coating", but an actual conversion of the surface. TMT has the ability to perform ALL diffusion alloy processes. We also create new systems tailored to meet the needs of the manufacturer or end user. Whether used alone or combined with other coating systems, reduction of the effects of wear, erosion, corrosion or galling is the end result. Erosion resistant diffusion alloys have added years to the lives of steam turbines, while surfaces resistant to hot gas corrosion have added thousands of hours to the lives of gas turbines. Diffusion alloying is not restricted to line of sight.

The Super SR73 thermal spray gun, designed and built by TMT, combines the latest technological advances and is unlike any other.
