In April 2000, the International Thermal Spray Association announced the establishment of a Thermal Spray Historical Collection.
Growing in size and value, there are now over 30 different spray guns and miscellaneous equipment, a variety of spray gun manuals, hundreds of photographs, and several thermal spray publications and reference books.
Future plans include a virtual tour of the collection on this website for the entire global community to visit which we now anticipate to be ready in the fall of 2004. For the moment, you can view a descriptive list of the collection.
If you are able to offer more detailed identification information or need information on donating the ITSA historical Collection, contact ITSA Administrative Assistant Kathy Dusa at KathyDusa@thermalspray.org or ITSA Historical Collection Archivist Frank Hermanek at Fhermanek@aol.com
This is a worldwide industry collection and we welcome donations from the entire thermal spray community.
