Thermally sprayed SiC coatings - TRL4
The properties of SiC (extreme hardness, low friction coefficient, to being chemically inert, comparably low density) makes it highly attractive as a coating for many industrial applications. Together with the low raw material price, SiC is a cost-effective competitor to most hard coating materials on the market.
A new company (SERAM COATINGS AS) has been founded to further develop and commercialize the technology and the coatings.
