Foremost recently added Thermal Spray Aluminum to our blasting, painting and coating division.  Thermal Spray Aluminum (TSA or also known as “Metallizing”) is a process whereby a powdered or wire form of metal is melted by an energy source and propelled or sprayed onto the surface of another metal or structure for the purpose of corrosion control, wear resistance, traction, or to restore dimensions. Although there are many thermal spray aluminum processes available, the two most common and efficient methods of application are Twin Wire Arc systems and Combustion Wire Fed (flame spray) systems.  Foremost crews employ the Twin Wire Arc system.

Typical Uses For Thermal Spray Aluminum:

  • Oil & Gas
    • Pipe racks; Risers
  • Petrochemical Plants
    • Used to combat corrosion under insulation (CUI)
  •  Structural
  • LPG, propane and butane bottles
  • Wind towers
  • Civil & Architectural
  • Film Industry
  • Marine

Foremost can fulfill your painting/coating requirements at our facilities in Lloydminster, Hythe and Stettler or we can send one of our state of the art units to your site.  Our knowledgeable staff can:
