Bridge & Vessel

Thermal spray materials to protect it from corrosion has always been recognised as a long-term solution for many industries. Wisdom has been providing anti-corrosion solutions for over 10 years, to a diverse range of industries all around the world. One of its successes is the anti corrosion protection of bridges, including the Forth Road Bridge.
Most bridges are prone to corrosion from the weather and from salt used to ‘grit’ roads in winter. Bridges such as the cross-sea Bridge face the additional threat from the harsh sea salt environment in which it is situated. Metal spraying is the best protection from corrosion in this environment.
In the Wisdom flame spray process, the raw material in the form of spool wire and coil wire, is melted in an oxygen-fuel gas flame. The molten spray solidifies on the component surface to form a dense, strongly adherent coating suitable for corrosion protection. Major advantages of the flame spray process are that the coatings are available for almost instant use with no drying or curing times and there is no risk of damaging the component through heat distortion.
Though our dedication to quality, we are able to manufacture high performance wire that will extend product life, increase product efficiency, and decrease operating costs by providing the most superior product on the market. Long term corrosion protection in hard to access areas. Aluminum used to protect steel from road salts corrosion. Wisdom offers both nickel and cobalt hot extruded based alloys to supply the industry with the quality you need.
