Cerium Oxide Diffusion Coating for Metallic Alloys

National Energy Technology Laboratory, Pennsylvania, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

A coating/surface treatment for metal alloys that can be applied by dipping, spraying, or brushing. Once heated, the coating diffuses into the metal component, providing increased oxidation resistance in high temperature environments.

Primary Application Area: Materials & Chemical

Technology Development Status: Prototype

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Metals exposed to high temperature oxidize and corrode, ultimately limiting component life and leading to added costs. Several processing technologies exist to enhance an alloy's high temperature oxidation resistance; this method is simpler, more cost effective, and can be easily incorporated into component manufacturing.
