Cerium Oxide Diffusion Coating for Metallic Alloys
National Energy Technology Laboratory, Pennsylvania, United States
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.
