Are you looking for the perfect surface coating solution that fits your needs?

Surface coating is an economical method to achieve high performance characteristics on exposed surfaces, e.g. by welding overlays or by thermal spraying.

A metal object can be surface coated on the exposed area to achieve high wear, corrosion resistance or thermal insulation. Surface coating can also be used to repair damaged parts. Complete part replacement is then unnecessary and this refurbishment effectively extends the lifetime of the part.

The common denominator for all of these applications is the need to achieve wear, corrosion, heat, abrasion and/or impact resistance. This combination of properties needs a dedicated surface coating powder formulation for the specific application.

Our powders are particularly suited to the needs of surface coating processes and applications such as powder welding, flame spraying, plasma spraying, HVOF (High
Velocity Oxy-Fuel), HVAF (High Velocity Air Fuel), PTA (Plasma Transferred Arc), laser cladding and cold spraying.

Coatings are today standard practice for many applications in a wide range of industries:

  • Agriculture
  • Automotive
  • Chemestry
  • Energy
  • Earth moving machines
  • General machinery
  • Glass mould
  • Marine
  • Paper and printing
  • Petrochemical
  • Plastic extrusion
  • Repair and replacement
  • Solid oxide fuel cells
  • Steel manufacture
  • Turbine industries
  • Oil and gas
  • Oilsands

Our brands stands for high quality and reliability in the global thermal spray powder market

Our business is defined by our customer focus and customer partnerships, which have made us one of the most successful spray powder manufacturers in the world. Working with original equipmet manufacturers (OEM) is our tradition.

In order to meet customers' needs in coating processes, we pay particular attention to specific requirements of controlled chemistries, precisely defined grain forms and morphologies, as well as adjusted particle size distributions.

Over the past few decades. we have acquired the necessary knowledge of how to develop new materials and recycling processes, and how to improve the products we provide to our customers. Comprehensive application engineering offers a unique advantage for AMPERIT® powders, ranging from parameter development to complete coating solutions.

Under the brand name AMPERWELD®, Höganäs is a quality supplier of metals and alloy powders for surface welding.

Each of our AMPERWELD powders is designed for a specific welding process with tightly controlled particle size distribution and morphology.
