Adhesive Characterization of Thermal Spray Coatings


Thermally sprayed coatings are often used on structural parts to create thermal barriers for heat management. Often times, such coatings can be quite thick making adhesion testing challenging. This webinar will introduce a unique use of instrumented scratch testing to characterize the toughness and adhesion of thermal spray coatings.
