Durable MCrAIX Coatings for Demanding Applications in Gasturbines

This project focuses on the development of new MCrAlX coatings with better resistance against oxidation, corrosion and thermal cycling.
MCrAlX coatings are widely used as oxidation and corrosion protective overlays or as bond coats in thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems for gas turbines. This project focuses on the development of new MCrAlX coatings with better resistance against oxidation, corrosion and thermal cycling. Both thermodynamic/kinetic simulation and experimental methods are used in the study.
