Rising fuel prices and more stringent requirements in the field of the vehicle emissions such as nitrogen oxides, fine dust and carbon dioxide are increasing the pressure on the engine manufacturers to utilise technologies which contribute to a reduction in the emissions. In this connection, the interest in liner surface coatings has risen considerably in the last two years, also in the SUMEBore coating solution from Sulzer Metco. The powder-based APS method is very flexible and can also process materials to which wire-based methods do not have any access, particularly metal matrix composites and pure ceramics.
