Summary

Ceramic coating for metals, no longer theoretical technology, are now produced for applying to used and new metal components to prolong their resistance to heat, corrosion, and molten metal attack. Many of the problems associated with application, bonding, curing, porosity, and thermal shock of ceramic coatings, and that have retarded their effective utilization in the past, have been eliminated. Successfully being used on surfaces exposed to elevated temperatures and molten metal contact, ceramic coatings are providing dramatic increases in service life of the metal substrates.
