    Workshop on thermal spray coatings technologies and characterization

    Workshop on thermal spray coatings technologies and characterization,

    10 - 11 April, 2018, Plzeƈ, Czech Republic


    The objective of the workshop is to present the insight to the principle, technical aspects and development of Thermally Sprayed Thermal Barrier Coatings systems. The presentation of advanced thermal spray technologies, such as suspension or solution plasma spraying will be done in comparison with well-established processes. New types of coatings materials and variability of their microstructures will be also discussed. Besides the spraying process, the methods of TBC’s properties evaluation will take an important part of the presentations. Altogether, the workshop will bring a deeper understanding of the sophisticated coating system that plays irreplaceable role in power, aerospace or automotive industry.


    Managers of sophisticated productions, products development and design engineers, technologists, scientists, lecturers and students interested in the field of surface engineering.

    8RIPT in Limoges, 6-8 December 2017

    Dear Colleagues,

    Let me present you the fifth and last circular of the 8 RIPT meeting which will be held in Limoges from 6th to 8th December, 2017.

    The presentations about all aspects of thermal spraying, starting from the feedstock (powders, suspensions and solutions) by spray processes including cold spray as well as suspension and solution spray techniques and post spray treatment, up to characterization and applications of coatings are invited. The presentations about modeling of spray process and of behavior of coatings in service are also very welcome.

    The Organizing Committee have increased a bit the conferences fees in order to assure transport with a bus from center of Limoges the European Center of Ceramics where the meeting will take place. Moreover, the educational course for the newcomers in thermal spray field, proposed for the first time at 7RIPT,  is intended to be organized during the first day of the meeting on the December 6th. The theoretical lectures will be given by well knows scientists on the morning. The practical demonstration of thermal spray process and coatings characterization will take place on the afternoon. The number of attendees of the course is limited to preserve its high pedagogic quality.

    We would like to welcome the industrial partners to present their new products at the industrial exhibition.

    With regards

    Lech Pawlowski
