High-Tech Coatings for Turbines and Solar Power Plants

Forschungszentrum Jülich opens new centre for thermal spraying methods

Jülich, 13 December 2019 – A new centre for thermal spraying methods was officially opened at Forschungszentrum Jülich today. Coating technology is steadily growing in importance, with an annual growth rate of 8 % globally. Low-wear, high-temperature coatings are in demand for a wide variety of industrial applications, including aircraft engines, gas turbines, combustion engines, fuel cells, and solar power plants. Facilities at the Jülich Thermal Spray Center (JTSC), which have a value equivalent to over € 5 million, cover the entire range of methods and are now also available to external users.
