Emerging Thermal Barrier Coating Technologies in Turbines

Emerging Thermal Barrier Coating Technologies in Turbines

It is an established fact that turbine components can face high temperature degradation. As the industries increase their focus toward improved performance and functionality, the demand for improved turbine performance also increases. Thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are an integral type of protective coatings for turbine components. These coatings protect the surfaces from oxidation and corrosion and also increase the durability and reliability of turbine engines by offering wear protection. It can be anticipated that maintaining the coating thickness and structure control of the protective coating increases the durability of the end component. Hence, effective application of TBC and choosing the right material for the coatings are very important for longer sustenance of the coating with minimal maintenance. As component design becomes complex, the challenge to create a coating technology that can meet the industry requirements of enhanced performance attributes also increases.

This research service titled, “Emerging Thermal Barrier Coating Technologies in Turbines” intends to capture the technologies and industry trends in the field of TBCs for turbines with emphasis on the emerging technology trends and developments. The research service also intends to capture the key application markets for TBC and the end user needs in each segment along with the current innovation landscape. The research also explains how the technology is likely to evolve in the future and identifies key opportunities for the coatings in the future.
