Flame Spray System and Method of Using the Same

Abstract: 

A flame spray system and a method for applying uniform coatings of powdered plastics to surfaces which utilizes a pressurized carrier gas stream to transport plastic powder to a spray gun. The spray gun passes the powder through a flame produced at the end of the spray gun, melting the powder into droplets. When the molten plastic droplets strike the application surface, they adhere and combine to form a solid coat of plastic upon cooling.
