Hi Hong
Yes, I generally agree. The cold spray process will extend the use aluminium coatings into areas that arc spray can't, but I doubt that it will compete with the general anti-corrosion coatings of the arc spray process. The galvanic and self sealing properties of aluminium are wonderful and doubt whether using a technically superior coating (assuming unfavourable economics) will have any significant service life benefits for this type of anti-corrosion coating.
