Erosion

Erosion

Take action before your performance efficiency erodes

Impinging solid particles or water droplets cause material loss from solid surfaces due to mechanical interaction. This causes drops in turbine efficiency and reduction of rotor blade material.

Optimize your erosion resistance

We'll work with you to select a coating for your application, considering such conditions as particle size of erosion media and substrate properties such as temperature capability.


COATING FAMILY

PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS

Tungsten carbide (WC)

Heavy erosion protection on a variety of substrate materials with low fatigue debit

Titanium nitride (TiN)

Excellent low-angle erosion protection on aircraft components where weight and coating thickness are an issue
