  • 1.  Fabrication of a Dense Ceramic Coating by Using Flexible Cords and Sintered Rods as the Feedstock Materials

    Posted 13 days ago

    Hello Everyone,

    I have several questions regarding the porosity of flame-sprayed ceramic coatings. I would be grateful if you could share your experience and wisdom with me.

    Generally, high-temperature processes such as plasma spray are preferred over powder flame spray process for fabrication of ceramic coatings (e.g. Al2O3, Cr2O3, Fe3O4, etc.) due to their higher deposition efficiency and lower porosity level. However, it has been reported in the literature that using the consumables in the form of flexible cords and sintered rods rather than powder can generate relatively dense coatings with porosity levels (1-5 %) that are comparable to plasma-sprayed ones.

    • Has anyone here tried to use flexible cords and sintered rods to achieve a relatively dense ceramic coating by using flame spray equipment?
    • Have you encountered any technical challenges during the deposition of ceramic coatings when using rods and cords as the feedstock materials?
    • Would it be possible, in your opinion, to reduce the porosity level of the flame-sprayed ceramic coatings by applying post-spray treatments such as re-melting?

     

    Thank you in advance for your attention.

    Perhaps @Rogerio Lima or @Christopher Berndt could point you in the right direction.
