  • ARL's new cold spray compound looks promising as helicopter sand erosion solution in harsh desert terrain

    November 29, 2011

    ARL may have found a combination of cold spray coatings to fix the sand erosion problem that's causing helicopter maintenance nightmares in Iraq and Afghanistan operations. Fine particle sand in that region impacts rotorcraft blades during flight, eroding away at the blade composition - its coatings and its structure. This erosion to the baldes has cost...
