nanocoatings in aerospace

Aerospace and aviation coatings are generally used for protecting the structures and surfaces of the aircraft from harsh environments. Increasing requirements such as resistance to extreme temperatures, extreme climates, corrosion, abrasion and wear of engine parts have resulted in an increased demand for more reliable high performance coatings. A number of aerospace companies and agencies are beginning to use, or investigate the use of, nanocoatings in aerospace to add special characteristics to aircraft frames and interior and engine parts and component surfaces, which can include properties such as: self-cleaning; improved hardness; wear and corrosion resistance; improvement in fuel efficiency; and improved thermal performance and flame retardancy.

Advantages of using nanocoatings in aerospace and aviation include reduced carbon footprint, fewer cleaning and maintenance costs, protection against corrosion and erosion and reduced ice accretion. Nanocoatings are also allowing for fuel-burn savings through drag reduction. Aviation, especially military aviation suffers high maintenance costs which can be alleviated with the use of anti-corrosion nanocoatings. Multilayer structure, temperatures resistant, thermal shock, corrosive and erosive wear-resistant nanocoatings are also increasing in application in turboengines, increasing their service life considerably. Nanoparticle coatings can also facilitate crack healing, resulting in improved high-temperature, strength and creep resistance.
