Thermal spraying process, developed one century ago, used initially solid feedstock as powder or wire. One of the recent evolution of the processes results in the use of entirely liquid feedstock composed of chemical precursors which react during deposition. The process of solution precursor plasma spraying (SPPS) includes precipitation of solid phase from the liquid. The intensity of precipitation depends on jet temperature. The SPPS process enables obtaining e.g. metal-ceramic composite (cermet) coatings. The cermets having fine microstructure may be useful in many emerging applications. The applications include e.g. the biomedical, chemical, and energy generation fields. View this paper.
