The bilingual (German/English) trade journal THERMAL SPRAY BULLETIN covers the technology of Thermal Spraying in application-oriented specialist articles about new developments and state-of-the-art as well as peer-reviewed scientific specialist articles. In addition, reports on events, standardisation activities and companies keep our readership informed about latest developments.

Issue 1 (2022)

Issue Highlights:
Development of dense Si coatings by atmospheric plasma spraying

In modern aircraft engines, ceramic matrix composites with thermally sprayed protective coatings are used, which service life depends, among other things, on the properties of the Si bond coat. In this study, Si coatings...

Modelling and control of the thermal spray process by means of two-stage statistical prediction models

Highly efficient processes to decrease resource consumption are a growing challenge in the coating industry. In addition to the optimization of coatings, the prevention of deviations in coating properties is a particular...

Application potential of oxide coatings made of spinels

Oxide coatings made of spinels can be used in more applications than currently known. For such an extension of applications alternative compositions of the whole MgO-Al2O3 system and FeAl2O4 were explored using sintered...
