The review describes the experience of applying thermal spraying methods in manufacture of resistive coatings, as well as the use of appropriate materials containing different alloys and oxides. The positive results of producing resistors by the method of plasma spraying were obtained, providing a service life of more than 10 thou h at a temperature of 150 °C. The examples of practical application of resistive heating elements directly on the working surfaces of parts, requiring preheating to 400–500 °C, by the methods of thermal spraying were considered. The effective application of thermal spraying of resistive coatings on the products of electronic industry is shown, the specifics of which is associated with providing heating of local areas with a minimal thermal effect on the substrate. The advantages and prospects of developments of thermal spraying technology in producing of resistive coatings in different fields of engineering (electrical engineering, electronics, instrument engineering, etc.) are noted. 17 Ref., 6 Figures.
