Speaker presentation of ITSC2023 now available for download

Quebec, May 23, 2023 - We were speaker at the ITSC2023 (International Thermal Spray Conference) in Quebec City. The conference, themed “Next-Generation Thermal Spraying for Future Surfaces,” brought together leading technology experts, manufacturers, researchers and suppliers from around the world. Our presentation, NEXT-GENERATION COATING APPLICATIONS BY AEROSOL DEPOSITION was well received by the conference attendees, who provided overwhelmingly positive feedback. Customers were particularly impressed by the wide range of applications of the aerosol deposition and the different coating material we offer.

New coating from Heraeus enables service life of high-temperature alloys to be increased by up to eight times

Hanau, September 21, 2021 – Patented coating process from Heraeus extends the service life of high-temperature alloys for furnaces and chemical plants.

"The results of our study are very promising," says Dr. Ilka Luck, head of Heraeus High Performance Coatings. "The coating prevents any microstructural changes, voids and precipitations. Thus, alloy corrosion is greatly reduced. As a result, their service life is up to eight times longer."

Case Studies

Improved High-Temperature Sensor Accuracy and Performance Stability using Aerosol Deposition

High temperature sensors are coated with a protective layer to secure performance. By coating them with α-Al2O3 using aerosol deposition long term stability is improved and measurement accuracy increased over the life span of the sensor.

Significant Service Life Extension for High-Temperature Nickel Alloys

Even specialty Ni-alloys for high-temperature application are limited in their lifetime as they remain prone to corrosion. By coating these alloys with α-Al2O3 using aerosol deposition the service life of the system parts can be extended by a factor of 3 to 8 while reducing flaking significantly.
