materials & manufacturing research areas
Advanced Coatings conducts research and development utilizing a number of different coating technologies, which allows faculty and staff to select the optimal coating solution based on a particular problem or need. The approach to develop a coating solution is:
APPLY COATING TECHNOLOGIES
Through strategic partnership, Materials Processing has access to other coating technologies such as high velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) and plasma spray. The Materials Processing has the facilities to fully characterize the coatings for adhesion, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, erosion resistance, density, and microstructure.
