Repair & Rebuild with Coatings

Repair & Rebuild with Coatings

When confronted with the failure of an expensive part, there may be no need to scrap it. At Metallic Bonds we may be able to repair or rebuild the part to a specified size using coatings that can then be machined, milled, ground, finished, or honed.

Coatings can be engineered to combine repair or rebuild with enhanced performance that outlasts the original design many times over. Our coatings do not distort, warp, or crack parts, and do not cause any metallurgical change to the base metal. Repair coatings, which can include steels, carbides, ceramics, alloys, aluminum, and nickel, are applied at thicknesses from .003” to .500”. No curing time is required and parts can be masked to ensure the coating is applied only where it is needed. Shafts, bearings, rollers, gears, and gearboxes made from white and red metals, grey steels, castings, carbides, super alloys, and weldments are all candidates for coating repairs or rebuilds. See our Journal Bearing Repair page for a great example of our repair services. Typical thermal spray processes utilized for repair coatings are HVOF, Plasma, Arc Spray, Flame Spray or Metallizing. Our Brush Plating process is also a good candidate for repairs or rebuilds.

At Metallic Bonds we operate mobile equipment which allows work to be completed quickly at a customer’s site or plant without disassembling the part to be repaired and in some cases, with no further machining needed.

If you are looking for an alternative to scrapping a worn, damaged or mis-machined part, contact us for further information.

Typical Delivery / Turnaround Time is 3 to 5 working days.

24 hour service is available when significant downtime cannot be tolerated.
