Classification of the different metallising processes

History of metallising

  • At the beginning of the 20th century, Max Ulrich Schoop carried out tests in Zurich, spraying lead and zinc in order to produce a protective coating.
  • In 1909, Schoop obtained a patent for flame spraying using gas and oxygen combustion for melting the wire to be sprayed onto a substrate.
  • Schoop’s second patent dates back to 1911. This was a patent for electric arc metallising.
  • Thus, metallising technology was established.
  • At the beginning, metallising was used only for protection against corrosion.
  • The use of materials such as ceramics, plastic, oxides and many others started only after the Second World War.
