Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

High Temperature Coatings assolve the vital function of protecting the underlying materials from thermal stresses. Their impact in our society is important as these coatings find applications in many crucial sectors as energy production and the aerospace industry. One of the most important contributions of the field of material science research during the last century was the development of the Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) architecture, now a mature commercial technology and still a very active research field. Researchers from any field are now called from the institutions and the public to contribute to sustainable development. This is a very important opportunity for the High Temperature Coatings community which also can provide several applications in which TBCs and other high temperature coatings increase the efficiency of thermal engines and provide improved performance in other energy applications, such as in Solide Oxide Fuel Cells and in the protection from hot corrosion phenomena occurring in burning biomass. It is a pleasure for us editing this special issue in such an exceptionally active research field. We invite experts to contribute with their original research articles and with manuscripts regarding research ideas envisioning future opportunity for the High Temperature Coatings community also.

Title: Innovation of Corrosion-resistant Coating Technologies in Waste/Biomass-to-Energy Plants
Yuuzou Kawahara
Bi-Met Division and Technical Headquarters, Dai-Ichi High Frequency Co., Ltd.
Highly efficient renewable energy from Waste/Biomass plants is important issue world widely to prevent the world warming. In these plants, severe high temperature corrosion and erosion-corrosion damages occur for materials and coatings by much HCl, SOx gases and chlorides deposition in combustion gas environments. One of countermeasure for such damages, coating technologies becomes important fields because of those easy applicability, cost performance and variety of process and material selections. Recently, material forming and coating process technologies are progressed using advanced nano- and precise control technologies etc. In severe corrosive conditions, formation of dense, homogenous, and tough film are important issue to keep long lifetime of plants such as weld-overlay, cladding, thermal spray and slurry coat etc.This paper introduces recent trends of advanced coating applications and trials to actual plants.
