About NTST: Our Philosophy: Better, Faster, Safer, Fair Pricing
NTST specializes in high-tech thermal spray coatings technology. Non-combustible coating materials include all types and combinations of ceramics, carbides, metals, composites, and plastics that can virtually be sprayed on any substrate (e.g. metal, concrete, plastic, wood, salt, clay, rock, cardboard).
NTST conducts production spraying and thermal spray R&D for government, industry, and private concerns. The company and its personnel have played a leading role in research and development in materials and the thermal spray processes for the last 20 years, and have been continuously active in the thermal spray field since 1994.
NTST is a technology transfer spinoff company of the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and maintains close ties to the laboratory. NTST was formed in January 2008. The company is the outgrowth of Idaho Thermal Spray Technologies that was formed in 1995. NTST has sprayed over 60 materials in detailed thermal spray R&D. Results of this research is presented in 99 papers in the open literature.
NTST Thermal Spray Capabilities
NTST only utilizes the non-combustible plasma and electric arc processes, which are similar to welding technologies, to produce coatings. A technical basis is utilized at NTST to optimize these two processes in order to produce improved coatings. This methodology can lead to modifications to equipment, coating process parameters, and material processing techniques.. Coating materials utilized in the processes include all types and combinations of ceramics, carbides, and metals. None of the coating materials used in the NTST processes are combustible.
NTST Thermal Spray Services
NTST services involve high and low production, materials engineering (e.g. parametric testing), coatings R&D, applications development, materials characterization and evaluation, process evaluation, technical consultation regarding product utilization, computational studies, and coating characterization and performance evaluation.
NTST services solve problems for the customer including product and application mismatches and product optimization. These services are unique in that most businesses don't spend the time to guarantee product quality, more often letting the customer determine the specification of the product. Thus, process evaluation is the basis of the work scope that can involve parametric testing, coating characterization, computational studies, and performance evaluation.
Due to the complexity of the thermal spray processes, services are also offered in the fields of gas dynamics, coatings, materials, heat transfer, fluid flow, thermal-hydraulics, nuclear technology, and thermochemistry. NTST maintains a database of computer programs (i.e. statistics, plasma physics, particle dynamics, coating dynamics, chemistry) for use in design and analysis.
