Abradable coating solutions improve safety while reducing fuel consumption and emissions in turbomachinery. Whether aviation or power generation gas turbines, steam turbines or turbochargers, we have abradable materials for your clearance control applications.
Oerlikon Metco pioneered thermal sprayed gas turbine abradable coatings for the low pressure compressor more than a half century ago. Today, we design and produce abradable coatings for applications throughout gas turbine engines and other critical turbomachinery such as turbochargers and steam turbines.
Our composite abradable thermal spray powders are of the highest quality and consistency for long-lasting service. We also have a unique ability to test the abradable coatings we design using our in-house testing rig that closely simulates engine test conditions. Thus, we can prove rub results under varying conditions which helps qualify abradable solutions more rapidly and with higher confidence.
