Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/15/2016 -- Thermal barrier coatings are protective coatings that are usually applied on gas turbines or aero engine parts, exposed to elevated temperatures. A typical thermal barrier coating consists of a metallic layer paired with a ceramic layer. Thermal barrier coatings increase the durability and reliability of engine parts by preventing oxidation and corrosion. Thermal barrier coatings prevent melting, which in turn results in efficient energy conversion. In order to obtain the best results, surfaces of the engine parts should be made uniform before the application of thermal barrier coatings. High melting point, low thermal conductivity, low density, high thermal shock resistance, resistance to oxidation and chemical environment, high surface emissivity, and resistance to mechanical erosion are the key properties of thermal barrier coatings. Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) is the commonly used material in the thermal barrier coatings industry. It exhibits resistance to thermal shock and thermal fatigue at high temperatures. Sometimes, the ceramic material is made by incorporating materials such as fluorite and pyrochlorate in order to get high thermal and chemical stability for thermal barrier coatings. High performance ceramic coatings are gaining momentum of late due to the high scope of application of these materials in various sectors such as aerospace, automotive, health care, energy, and defense. Thermal spray technique dominates the thermal barrier coatings market. Improvement in thermal barrier coatings is expected to enable gas turbines to operate at higher gas temperatures.
