A materials expert at the University of Nottingham has secured over £2.1m to develop new coatings for aerospace that could cut jet plane emissions and help spacecraft venture further into our solar system.
Electro-codeposition of MCrAlY Coatings for Advanced Gas Turbine Applications - Complete Project Report
This is the complete final project report of the three-year AESF Foundation Research project (2018-2020) at the Tennessee Technological University, Cookeville, TN., to optimize the electro-codeposition process for improved oxidation/corrosion performance of MCrAlY coatings on critical superalloy components in gas turbine engines.

Electro-codeposition of MCrAlY Coatings for Advanced Gas Turbine Applications - 12th Quarterly Research Report
The aim of this research is to seek a sulfur-free plating solution for electro-codeposition of (Ni,Co)-CrAlY composite coatings. In this quarter, the coating plated in the sulfur-free, all-chloride plating solution with sodium lauryl sulfate wetting agent showed the best oxidation performance. This coating also demonstrated much better oxidation resistance that the bare CMSX-4 alloy.
Valence Seattle has added capability for Type II and Type III Anodizing with Class 2 black dye, further expanding its offerings after launching Type III Anodizing operations in September 2020.
PRI Qualification is launching an Aerospace Coatings Applicator Specialist (ACAS) program in 2021 aimed at allowing professional aerospace coatings applicators to earn industry-approved qualifications.
A recent collaboration between CFAN, SprayVision and Saint Clair Systems uses an innovative film measurement system to investigate ways to improve first time yield.
Mankiewicz welcomes René Lang as the new head of its aviation business. Lang succeeds Andreas Ossenkopf, who is still available for certain projects as he seeks out new challenges.
