Environmental Barrier Coatings (EBCs)

Environmental barrier coatings are typically applied on metals and ceramics when they are unable to withstand very harsh operating conditions.

Lot of industrial processes occur at very high temperatures under the flow of harsh, corrosive gases. Metals often can corrode and lead to catastrophic failure during operation.

To prevent this, and to enhance their life and operating efficiencies, metals and ceramic components are coated with a different material that can withstand these demanding environments.

Often, the properties of the (top) environmental barrier coating material has to be matched with that of the underlying substrate. The next challenge is to find a way to chemically / physically bond the top coat to the substrate.
