Coating Services

The majority of gas turbines require a coating system to protect the components from heat, corrosion or erosion. Component Coating and Repair Services (‘CCRS’) specialise in the development and application of organic and inorganic overlay and diffusion coatings (IP1041), dry film lubricants, barrier coatings and aluminium sacrificial coatings (IP9183).

Key characteristics for these coatings are:

  • Protect against corrosion and particle erosion
  • Temperature resistant
  • No embrittlement of high strength steel
  • Sacrificial to ferrous alloys
  • Resistant to aerospace oil, fuel and hydraulic fluid
  • Suitable for application to both external and internal surfaces – smooth, low profile film
  • Easily repairable without dismantling or oven curing the component
  • Environmentally friendly – REACh compliant, water based and solvent free
  • Durable and damage resistant

CCRS has the capability to process a wide range, size and complexity of components, from small compressor blades to the latest in landing gear components.
