coating & stripping

Pratt & Whitney Automation (PWA) is experienced in applying and removing a wide spectrum of coatings using patented environmentally-friendly technologies.

As a leader in coating application systems integration, PWA has designed, manufactured and integrated a wide variety of coating systems. Our eco-Convergent Spray Technologies™ apply coatings for thermal protection, acoustic insulation, fire protection and skid resistance, among other purposes. The process has proven itself over many years, especially in the application of thermal ablative coatings at high deposition rates without using volatile organic solvents.

PWA is the only company in the world to develop automated turbine blade coating systems.

Our patented coating removal system called Automated Robotic Maintenance System® (ARMS) uses robotic equipment designed to harness the power of pressurized water up to 55,000 PSI. These waterjet boxes are designed for a wide range of tough maintenance refurbishment jobs, using precision-controlled ultra-high-pressure water streams to remove a variety of coatings. ARMS waterjet technology has an inherent advantage over conventional stripping methods such as machining, grit blasting, and chemical dipping.
