ITSA and TSS Partner to Increase Thermal Spray Use

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Comment | More

The International Thermal Spray Association (ITSA) and the ASM Thermal Spray Society (TSS) have announced a cooperative effort to promote the adoption of thermal spray technology throughout the industry. Both organizations recognize additional opportunities for expanding thermal spray usage outside of turbine technology.

TSS President Mitch Dorfman stated, “Thermal spray has significant potential for the oil and gas industry and chemical applications, and we are seeing increased global usage, particularly in Asia. Together, our two organizations are better positioned to identify these opportunities and encourage thermal spray use.”

TSS and ITSA Steering Committees will reach out to members of both organizations to participate in efforts to grow the industry. Regular meetings are currently underway to explore how both organizations can support each other in event planning and outreach to designers. In addition, TSS management is also soliciting ITSA representation regarding the society’s first-ever certification program, Certified Thermal Spray Operators (CTSO), to be launched next year.

Specific efforts will be announced through each group’s web site and trade publications.
