Technology is at the heart of our business. We provide specialist coating solutions to state of the art turbine components. Modern turbines operate at temperatures above the melting point of the alloy of its components. Together with advanced cooling systems the coating technologies are key drivers to increased engine performance.
Coatings applied at TST can broadly be split into two categories: environmental coatings which help reduce the rate of corrosion, and thermal barrier coatings (TBC) which are used to reduce the metal temperature of turbine components. Both types of coating allow extended component life and/or higher turbine operating temperatures, thus increasing the fuel efficiency and reducing the cost of operation.
