Thermally Sprayed Protective Coatings for Cylinder Liner SurfacesBy
SUMEBore coatings are applied by a powder-based air plasma spraying (APS) process. The APS method is very flexible and can also process materials to which wire-based methods do not have any access, particularly metal matrix composites and pure ceramics.
The compositions can be tailored to the specific challenges in an engine, e.g. excessive abrasive wear, scuffing, corrosion caused by adulterated fuel, etc.
