Weidman Co. Inc. has developed a portable, thermoplastic spray system that can coat a range of materials.
The High Velocity Impact Fusion equipment can coat up to 400 square feet per hour, claims the Fort Myers, Fla., firm. Nylon 12 and other thermoplastics can be sprayed onto plastics, composites, metals and other materials, according
Weidman said the HVIF process is suited to in-plant use or in the field. The United States Air Force, for example, installed one at its Warner Robins, Ga., base for large-scale spray applications.
The company claimed the technology provides good adhesion between the substrate and the coating. Weidman lists the machinery at $175,000-$230,000.
