Arc Spray

The Excalibur arcspray process uses two wires of special grade stainless steel, which are melted by an electric arc. The molten material is then atomized by compressed air and propelled towards the substrate to be coated. Once the particles hit the substrate, they cool, harden and bond to the surface.

Uses

Stainless-steel, gourmet-level cookware Advantages

Surface resists marring and gouging by metal cooking utensils while maintaining its appearance and functional properties. Outstanding coating adhesion. Disadvantages

Higher cost than all other coating methods, due to the additional manufacturing step, materials and required equipment. Requires a highly skilled applicator that is experienced in arc spray.
