The Company

Thermaspray is housed in a 2200m² custom-built operational facility situated in Olifantsfontein (Clayville) between Pretoria and Johannesburg. We offer a full range of thermal spray coating services, such as thermal spraying, Plasma Transferred Arc (PTA) cladding / welding, polymer coating solutions, as well a finishing, grinding, machining and burnishing services to customers throughout Southern Africa. Our specialty services are in the supply of wear and corrosion-resistant thermal spray coatings and specialised welding services to OEMs and end-users.

The company was established following the commercialisation of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research's (CSIR's) ThermaSpray and Repair Group. During the late 1990s, our staff and use of technology, as well as our development and innovation were acknowledged by Technology Top 100, earning us inclusion on their Roll of Honour.

Over the past twenty-three years, thermal spray technology has undergone rapid growth. Today, thermal spraying is a very powerful tool, finding a wide range of applications in virtually every industry.

Thermaspray leads the field in providing advanced thermal spray coating technology solutions, based on a number of highly specialised processes. For example, all spraying at Thermaspray is performed using 6-axis robotic gun manipulation to ensure absolute process control and repeatability.

Thermaspray is an Eskom level 1 certified supplier of thermal spray coatings and PTA (Plasma Transferred Arc) cladding.

PTA (Plasma Transferred Arc) complements the thermal spray coating process. We are able to apply advanced weld hard-facing using the PTA process as one of our specialities.
