MSSA stock Ceramic and Metal Spray Powders used to provide Ceramic Coatings. The powders are for use with Flame Spray, Plasma, HVOF, Spray Weld, Cold Spray, Laser Weld and Plasma Transferred Arc (PTA) Hard Facing.

We supply our own range of powders, but can offer other brands as required, just ask our sales team and they will provide price and availability.

The list below details a selection of the range of Ceramic powders available. If the powder you are searching for is not listed, please contact us with your enquiry as in most cases we will be able to source it for you.

Powder Name



Approx. Hardness

Nominal Composition

MSSA 1101

MSSA 1101 has greater resistance to abrasion and impact than coatings of white alumina. They are not quite as efficient thermal barriers as the white alumina coatings, but are usually used in high temperature applications if wear and abrasion are also part of the problem.

  • Pumps
  • Cylinder Liners
  • Dump Valve Plugs and Seats
  • Galvanizing Dip Tanks
  • Pouring Troughs
  • Ingot Molds

Alumina Titania

MSSA 1102

MSSA 1102 is a ceramic powder used where only moderate abrasive wear resistance is required. It is soluble in alkalis and sulphuric acid but resistant to attack in many other environments

  • Seal Areas
  • Pump Components
  • Sleeves Shafts
  • Gland Packings

MSSA 1105

MSSA 1105 is a white alumina ceramic powder. It produces dense coatings which resist wear by fibers and threads, and also resist erosion in high temperatures. Coatings of MSSA 1105 are also useful as thermal barriers and, when sealed, are used for electrical resistance in high temperatures. A recently developed use is as an abrasive coating in machine element clearance control applications in temperatures up to 1650°C in jet engines.

  • Tension Gates
  • Draw Rolls
  • Rocket Nozzles
  • Missile Nose Cones
  • Rocket Engine Thrust Chambers
  • Machine Element Clearance Control in Jet Engines
