Ceramic Thermal Spray Coatings

  • Ceramics applied by thermal spray are used for
    • Dielectric strength
    • Sliding wear
    • Thermal barriers
    • Corrosion protection
  • Typical thickness of 0.003” to 0.030”
  • Hard ceramic coating materials
  • Very dense to porous depending on application requirements
  • Coatings typically have a 150 microinch Ra as-sprayed finish
  • Excellent adhesion
  • Can be ground to a 15-20 µin Ra surface finish, or superfinished to 5 µin Ra.

Common Coatings:

  • Alumina (Aluminum Oxide, Al2O3)
  • Zirconia (Zirconium Oxide, ZrO2)
  • Chromium Oxide (Cr2O3)
  • Titania (TiO2)
  • Yttria stabilized Zirconia (YSZ thermal barrier coatings, ZrO2-Y2O3)
