Abradable Thermal Spray Coatings Abradable coatings are designed to preferentially abrade when contact is made with a mating part. Thermal spray abradable coatings have low structural integrity so they are readily abraded when they come into contact with a moving surface with higher structural integrity. The coatings are designed not to damage the mating surface. There are a number of different abradable coating types, to cater for different operating temperatures, corrosive environments and mating materials. The coating structure can be either: Very porous with many unreacted or unmelted particles (which would by normal standards be considered as a very poor coating) produced by very careful selection of spraying parameters to achieve the right degree of abradability. These coatings can be difficult to reproduce accurately and need strict monitoring. Dense and uniform structured coatings with additives such as polymers, graphite, bentonite and boron nitride. These additives weaken the matrix material of the coating

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
