Summary

Ceramic coatings are currently being used to provide oxidation resistance and corrosion protection, to reduce wear and erosion, to modify surface electrical, chemical and physical properties, and to reduce component temperatures. Expanding the use of these coatings to ever more demanding applications requires an in-depth understanding of the process variables, in-process quality control methods, and detailed coating property data bases.
