Ceramic Coatings Market: Introduction
Ceramic Coatings are comprised of inorganic materials and used for providing oxide layers on metal or alloy surface. Ceramic Coatings are normally made from compositions of alumina, silica, alumina-magnesia, chromia, silicon carbide, silicon nitride, titania and zirconia. Ceramic Coatings minimize the heat on high-temperature components, prevent acidic and thermal corrosion, reduce friction and improve the aesthetics and appearance of surfaces. Ceramic Coatings have widespread applications in automotive and aviation industries. These applications include coating of metal surfaces and metal components owing to their high degree of abrasion and corrosion resistance.
Generally, the techniques employed for applying Ceramic Coatings on substrate include thermal spray coating, plasma spray coating, physical vapour disposition and chemical vapour disposition, sputter coating, etc. Plasma spray coatings are witnessing high demand from LCD and semiconductor manufacturing industries. Ceramic Coatings are also used in medical industry for implant coatings and dentistry. The Ceramic Coatings market has witnessed notable growth in the recent years and this growth is projected to continue over the forecast period.
