As an advanced surface treatment technology, thermal spraying plays an increasingly important role in the automotive industry. This article will introduce in detail the common methods of thermal spraying, such as flame spraying, arc spraying, and plasma spraying. It will also explain their unique technical characteristics, including uniform coating, strong bonding force, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance. Next, the article will focus on the application of thermal spray technology in automobile manufacturing, maintenance, and common coatings. In the automobile manufacturing industry, thermal spray technology is widely used for anti-corrosion and wear-resistant treatment of key components such as engines and chassis. In the field of automobile maintenance, thermal spray technology can be utilized to repair damaged parts and extend their service life. Additionally, thermal spray technology can prepare coatings with special functions, such as heat insulation and conductivity, among other commonly used coatings. Finally, this article will discuss the development trends in thermal spray technology, including research on new materials, process optimization, and intelligent applications, to further enhance the utilization of thermal spray technology in the automotive industry.
