Tribobond™ coatings in airframe and jet engines
Tribobond™ PVD and PACVD coatings are routinely being applied to enhance the performance of aerocraft component’s properties. They can be designed to provide thermal barriers or transfer properties across a wide range of load and temperature conditions in static and dynamic situations. Typical applications include engine and gearbox parts, bearings and actuators.
Many systems on aircrafts are subject to dust and dirt contamination, and both mechanical and thermal shocks. The application of such coatings reduces operating costs, spares inventories, maintenance times and complexity resulting in cost optimization and minimum environmental impact.
