The International Thermal Spray Association

The International Thermal Spray Association, a Standing Committee of the American Welding Society, is a professional industrial association dedicated to expanding the use of thermal spray technologies for the benefit of industry and society.

The association is closely interwoven with the history of thermal spray development. Founded in 1948 as “Metallizing Service Contractors,” the International Thermal Spray Association has been closely tied to virtually all major advances in thermal spray technology, equipment and materials, industry events, education, standards, and market development in North and South America.

A company-member industrial association, ITSA invites all interested potential member companies to talk with our officers, committee members, and company representatives to better understand member benefits. A complete list of International Thermal Spray Association member companies, their products and services, and their representatives can be reviewed at the member company listing on this site.
