Final Report - GLASCOAT (High-performance glass-based coatings)

Project ID: 505451
Funded under: FP6-NMP


This is the final report for the GLASCOAT project whose aim was to implement a variation of thermal spraying technique, the so-called flame spraying, coupled with infrared crystallisation in order to form glass compositions which would enable thick coatings.

In the introductory section, the report points up the characteristics of glasses which enable them to meet specific applications as well as it describes the formerly used method and its drawbacks for depositing glass coatings. Then, it describes the new process that has been deployed. Afterwards, the report covers briefly the objectives of the project and it proceeds with a summary of the work that has been performed and the major achievements.
