Thermal Spray Wires
Astro Alloys offers and stocks a wide array of TAFA® thermal spray wires. From traditional metal and metal alloys to complex cored wire compositions, we have what it takes to handle your arc spray wire applications. Proud of our role in the emergence and growth of the arc spray process, we continue to develop and refine thermal spray wires of all types - solid or cored, soft or hard - to help you take full advantage of the exceptional value arc spray provides.
TAFA® arc spray wires are tested and analyzed to make sure they offer the proper tensile strength, hardness and surface finish properties for thermal spraying, making sure you get it right every time. TAFA wires are engineered and manufactured exclusively for thermal spray. Strict specifications and production controls guarantee that each wire is manufactured to a precise metallurgical composition and free from defects such as slivers or contaminants.
Cored Wire Applications
All thermal spray wires are made to tight compositional tolerances, have the appropriate surface finish, and be spooled properly for consistent performance. Advanced material engineering of cored wires allows compositions that cannot be drawn as solid wires to be produced by enclosing powders in a metallic sheath. Application of cored wire technology has resulted in arc spray coatings replacing plasma coatings for many aircraft engine repairs and industrial wear applications.
Care is taken to ensure that the thermal spray wires have proper physical properties for thermal spraying such as:
- Tensile strength
- Surface Finish
- Corrosion Resistance
- Hard Surface Wear Resistance

Exceptional Wires For Superior Coatings
Whether your application calls for a reliable bond coat, dimensional restoration, or resistance to wear and corrosion, TAFA has a wire to meet that challenge. All Praxair and TAFA wires are engineered and manufactured exclusively for the specialized needs of thermal spray. Strict specifications and production controls guarantee that each wire is manufactured to a precise metallurgical composition and free from defects such as silvers or contaminants.
Post manufacturing testing and analysis assure that the targeted characteristics are achieved. Click the link below for the Tafa® wire brochure. Contact Astro Alloys today for more information on our thermal spray wires!
