The conference will highlight advances in thermal spray research including information on new processes, new materials, and new applications. The event provides an attractive forum for all stakeholders of the thermal spray community such as researchers from industry, research institutions, and academia; professionals from thermal spray service providers; equipment and feedstock manufacturers; and OEMs and users to interact and exchange ideas during and after the conference. The event will also provide an ideal platform for young researchers and engineers to familiarize themselves with recent advances in this rapidly evolving technology and gain application knowledge through the exhibition involving leading industries showcasing their products and services.
