Cold spray deposition, which can be framed in the wider family of additive manufacturing, is a manufacturing technique that is able to produce coatings on diverse types of substrates through the deposition of feedstock powder. As a low-temperature process, cold spray represents a potential solution for the metallization of temperature-sensitive materials, i.e. polymers and polymer matrix composites. The study of the cold spray technology for the metallization of polymers is still in its early stage, and the
