The Indian Thermal Spray Association (iTSA) 

We welcome you to visit our website for information regarding The Indian Thermal Spray Association (iTSA), A Standing Committee of the registered NPO "ITSA ASSOCIATION FOR THERMAL SPRAY TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH [ITSA-ATSTR]", is a professional association dedicated to expanding the use of Thermal Spray Technology. ITSA-ATSTR is a non-profit organization registered under section 8 (1) of the Companies Act, 2013. This is a regional group of people who are working in the field of Thermal Spray and Engineering but the members are not only limited to the Indians. Welcome all of the people who devote thermal spraying to join us. The main mission of the iTSA is to promote the advancements of research & developments and industrial applications of thermal spray technology in India as well as in the world through establishing an information exchange platform (Workshops, meetings, and conferences) and the involvement of experienced professionals and young researchers and students in thermal spray R&D. We hope that through iTSA is able to bring regularly all researchers involved in R&D, technicians in thermal spray job shops, manufacturers of thermal spray materials and equipment, managers of the companies involving in thermal spraying in India to share the latest advancements of thermal spray technology. iTSA is managed by the Board of Delegates, composed of members. The Board of Delegates represents key Indian universities, research centers, and companies involved in thermal spraying, performing research, and producing feedstock, types of equipment, and coatings on the Indian and international levels. The institutions represented by the delegates gather together hundreds of scientists and engineers dedicated to R&D activities dedicated to base research, applied research, equipment and application development, problem-solving in the field of thermal spraying, materials science, and engineering etc.
