Thermal Barrier

Thermal Barrier

Beat the heat

When operating under extreme high temperature, the structural material of your most critical components is at risk for degradation. Thermal protections are needed to ensure both performance and durability. But we take it one step further. With our line of nearly 100 thermal barrier coatings, we can protect and even extend the operating life of your most critical components.  

The best thermal barrier for your components

When finding the best solution for you, we first choose the optimal process for your part’s geometry and material composition. We then select a coating material to meet your specifications. And if we don’t have the best solution for your operation, we’ll develop it—designing proper sample characteristics and tailoring coating microstructure and performance to meet your requirements.
