Ceramic coating for high temperature applications


Production

The ceramic parts are manufactured using a water stabilised plasma torch. In the plasma jet ceramic powder is melted, accelerated and projected onto a metal tool where the molten grains flatten and solidify, building a layered structure. The result: Our world-wide unique plasma ceramic with its brand name plascera®.
WPT can also be used to coat steel, graphite and various reinforced materials (e.g. plastics) with ceramics.
