Gas turbines in the aerospace industry are subdue to extreme conditions such as high temperature, oxidation, wear.
In order to improve their lifetime and fuel efficiency, the turbine components are coated with a thermal barrier coating, which allows higher operating temperatures.
Zirconia based ceramics are the best option for thermal barrier coating due to their high melting point, low thermal conductivity, resistance to thermal shocks, corrosion and erosion.
Saint-Gobain Coating Solutions has more than thirty years of proven expertise in supplying customers with coating solutions to support them overcome these challenges.
Our products are tailored according to our customers' requirements and go through rigorous testing, which guarantees consistency and quality.
Our offer includes thermal spray powders, suspensions, and the related plasma equipment to spray thermal and environmental barrier coatings. Additionally, we produce high quality EBPVD ingots used for sputtering thermal barrier coatings in the hot section of the gas turbine.
