New and Emerging Markets for Thick Films and Coatings: Unconventional Uses of Thermal Spray (NEM-TS)

Starts:  Sep 13, 2022 09:00 (CT)
Ends:  Sep 14, 2022 17:00 (CT)

Thermal spray processes have a unique ability to affordably produce thick film coatings out of a wide range of materials (metals, ceramics, and polymers). This technology also produces coatings with unique properties that can lead to enhanced performance in existing applications and discovery in new applications. With the wide range of materials, unique microstructures, and inexpensive capital investment; this technology is an excellent candidate for development in new and emerging markets.

This NEW symposium will help you develop an understanding of the versatility and potential benefits of thermal spray to drive cost savings and new designs. The technical program will explore novel uses of thermal spray that will likely aid in the development of new designs and lower cost manufacturing processes in such areas as:

  • solid oxide fuel cells
  • semiconductors
  • electrical insulation
  • heating elements
  • functional coatings/sensors
  • hydrophobic coatings
  • PVD and CVD targets
  • Other industries exploring the use of thermal spray for new applications
