Cold Spray technology offers exciting opportunities for companies seeking a competitive advantage for their coating needs. With Cold Spray, users can streamline existing processes, increase value-added content, reduce scrap, and improve recycling and refurbishment activities. As an established supplier of Cold Spray solutions, CenterLine is a leader in providing commercial Cold Spray systems and services.

Cold Spray is considered part of the Thermal Spray family of processes and can be identified by a variety of industry terms such as: 
  • Cold Gas-Coating Technique
  • Cold Gas-Dynamic Method (CGDM)
  • Cold Gas-Dynamic Spray Technology (CGDS)
  • Cold Gas-Dynamic Spray Method (CGSM)
  • Cold Spray
  • Cold Spray Processing
  • Dymet® [Obninsk Center for Powder Spraying (OCPS)]
  • Gas-Dynamic Spray (GDS)
  • High Speed Particle Deposition
  • Kinetic Metallization® [Innovative Technology, Inc.]
  • Kinetic Spray Process
  • Kinetic Spray Coating
  • Kinetic Spray Coating Method
  • Supersonically Induced Mechanical Alloy Technology (SIMAT)
  • Vacuum Cold-Spray (VCS)
CenterLine has chosen to employ the term Low-Pressure Cold Gas-Dynamic Spray since it is unique, unambiguous, and communicates the exact nature of the process.  The term "pressure" is included in the process designation to distinguish CenterLine's proprietary system that uses commonly available compressed air rather than more complex systems that require the use of high-pressure inert gas.

CenterLine's family of commercial Low-Pressure Cold Gas-Dynamic Spray products and systems are marketed using the SST Cold Spray™ brand name.
