Suspension Plasma Spraying of Triboactive Coatings for High Temperature Applications
In recent years, suspension plasma spraying (SPS) was investigated regarding the spraying of functional coatings with deterministic abilities. In this contribution the possibilities are discussed to achieve oxide ceramic coatings based on titania by SPS, which show a reduction of their coefficient of friction under dry sliding conditions. Besides the possibility to mix different feedstock suspensions in the process, the achievable low thickness and homogenous microstructure of suspension-sprayed coatings shall allow an operation in fields, where high demands towards the adhesion, cohesion and near net shape are made.
