    2nd Summer School on Suspension & Solution Spraying in Trollhättan, 16-18 September 2020

    It is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to the 2020 Summer School on Suspension & Solution Thermal Spraying, to be held in Trollhättan, Sweden during 16–18 September, 2020.


    Developing on the success of the previous ‘Summer School on Suspension & Solution Thermal Spraying’ held in Trollhättan in 2016, this event will bring together people from both academia and industry. This summer school will include lectures from experts in the field of thermal spraying covering all major aspects of liquid feedstock spraying, ranging from fundamentals and process diagnostics to characterisation and applications. The school will also include a demonstration of the state-of-the-art liquid feedstock plasma spraying equipment available at University West.


    Thermal spraying of liquid feedstock in the form of a suspension or a solution has gained vital interest among the scientific and industrial community, especially during the last decade. Employing a liquid feedstock results in unique microstructural features which are significantly different as compared to the conventional coatings created by a powder feedstock resulting in enhanced functional performance. The ability of this approach to develop coatings with diverse functionalities (thermal barrier, environment barrier, wear resistant, superhydrophobic, biocompatible, etc.) has already been established. The initial throughput and deposition efficiency related concerns associated with the method have also been overcome as a consequence of significant advances in both thermal spray equipment and feedstock preparation. A few key application domains which would benefit from thermal spraying with liquid feedstock include aerospace, biomedicine, energy conversion, automotive, etc.


    Trollhättan is home to a number of high-tech companies, such as GKN Aerospace (producing jet engines and developing rocket engine technology) and NEVS (National Electric Vehicle Sweden – developing its platform for the future generation of electric cars in the former SAAB Automobile factory). In fact, 90% of the world’s aeroplanes contain parts manufactured in Trollhättan. The School venue and participants’ accommodation will be conveniently located close to the city centre, eliminating need for time-consuming and costly transportation.


    We are looking forward to seeing you all in Trollhättan during 16–18 September 2020!
