ThermaSic Powders
TWI has recently completed a project on the development of ThermaSiC coatings, a new product from Seram Coatings, Norway. TWI’s expertise has led to a breakthrough in the deposition of silicon carbide (SiC) based thermal spray powders, which are known to decompose at elevated temperatures.

ThermaSiC Coatings

  • TWI’s longstanding expertise in thermal spray coating technologies, and specifically the application of ceramic coatings, has enabled dense ThermaSiC coatings to be produced using conventional thermal spraying processes
  • The TWI team, comprised of Dr Melissa Riley, Andy Tabecki, Dr Feifei Zhang and Catherine Richardson, conducted a number of trials with a range of ThermaSiC powders to achieve high quality coatings using multiple spraying systems
  • The coatings offer significant potential in a number of applications across a wide range of industry sectors

TWI is currently evaluating the coatings for a number of industrial applications, including an investigation of coating properties such as adhesion/cohesion strength, wear, erosion and cavitation resistance.
