Assessment of the Zn/Al Metal Spraying Technology without Blast Treatment
Recently, in the view of maintenance-free type corrosion prevension of steel bridges, thermal spraying with good durability and long life is desired. Zn/Al metal spraying is spotlighted due to its low life cycle cost (LCC). Zn/Al metal spraying without blast treatment, one of corrosion prevension methods, has better efficiency and environmental property, such as less fume, than the conventional method based on JIS H 8305. In this paper a comparison was made on the properties of the Zn/Al sprayed coating without blast treatment and the coating of the conventional method. In the results, it was shown that the coating of Zn/Al metal spraying without blast treatment had the same properties as conventional method based on JIS H 8305.
