Thermal History Coatings

The new SCS Thermal History Coatings (THCs) give the operator reliable temperature profiles in harsh  environments. The coatings are deposited using robust standard industrial processes so that they survive where other techniques fail. The THC  stores the thermal exposure information and later – after operation – can be read out by using an optical probe.

Thermal History Paint

SCS Thermal History Paints (THPs) are formulated to enable accurate thermal profiling whilst being easy to apply using the same air spraying process as many common paints. They can be employed as an alternative to the Thermal History Coatings when more specialist deposition techniques are not necessary, are too costly or are unsuitable, for example when large areas require coverage.

Durability Coating

SCS have identified a coating composition that has shown superior durability in comparison to a standard thermal barrier coating (TBC). This opens up completely new market perspectives based on the advanced protection properties of the coating.

Thermal Gradient Testing

The automated rig is designed to test multiple samples simultaneously in a combustion environment whilst continuously monitoring the temperature. In contrast to other conventional isothermal rigs this test rig enables the testing of entire coating system for future coating applications.

Advanced Collection Optic

This OPtical Energy Transfer System (OPETS) is designed to collect light from a moving source in a specified field of view without losing intensity by a narrow instrumentation function. The intensity remains unchanged when moving the source across the field of view.
