TSA

Enhanced Corrosion Protection for Extended Durability

TSA, also known as thermal spray aluminium, is often referred to as metallising or schooping. This thermal spray coating offers superior protection against leaks and corrosion compared to traditional paints or coatings. In the industrial sector, TSA is frequently used in aggressive environments prone to corrosion or to shield tanks, vessels and insulated pipes from corrosion under insulation (CUI). In infrastructure and construction, TSA is an excellent choice for safeguarding against de-icing salts and mechanical damage on bridges, locks and balconies. By using TSA, you ensure added corrosion resistance and significantly extend the lifespan of the structure.

Advantages of Thermal Spray Aluminium (TSA)

With TSA, we meticulously apply a layer of aluminium to the surface that needs protection. This preservation method boasts several benefits. Primarily, it's a long-lasting solution that, unlike paint, actively combats corrosion. TSA is the premier solution for protecting insulated pipes from corrosion under insulation (CUI). A single coat suffices, and TSA dries instantly without requiring curing time. This means no delays for transport or further processing. Moreover, a thermally sprayed coating can seamlessly integrate with paints and other coatings for added protection or aesthetic finishing. The longevity of TSA surpasses that of many other coatings.

Mourik is a leading authority on TSA and other thermally sprayed coatings, such as zinc and alloys. The application demands precision and there is minimal room for error. Our experts have mastered this technique, applying the coating uniformly at the desired thickness. Achieving perfection on the first attempt conserves materials, time and money. Specifically for tank bottoms, we've designed a robot that automates the thermal spray coating application. This robot operates with even greater consistency, speed and safety. In real-world scenarios, the internal coating of a tank bottom using the TSA robot is significantly faster.
