Corrosion Behavior and Thermal Conductivity of Plasma Sprayed AlN/Al2O3 Coating

Composite spray coatings containing Al2O3 and AlN were prepared and their tensile bonding strength, microhardness, corrosion behavior and thermal conductivity were compared to those of pure Al2O3. The goal of this study was to identify a spray coating with an improved thermal conductivity over that of Al2O3 for use in coating heat exchangers, furnace walls, heat pipes, etc. The coatings that were prepared had AlN : a-Al2O3 ...

The Effects of Thermophysical Properties and Environmental Conditions on Fire Performance of Intumescent Coatings on Glass Fibre-Reinforced Epoxy Composites

The reaction to fire properties of three commercial coatings designed for steel structures were investigated. The coatings in this study were covering a glass fiber-reinforced epoxy composite. It was determined that the thermal barrier effectiveness of these coatings was dependent on the degree of expansion and the thermal conductivity of the expanded char. Using these two parameters, the required thickness of a coating that can enable a structure to withstand ...

Characterization of the carbonization process of expandable graphite/silicone formulations in a simulated fire

Preventing steel from losing its strength during fires is crucial for safe evacuation and effective fire fighting. One of the most common protective coatings applied to steel and other construction materials today is intumescent paint. In this study, researchers created a potential new protective coating using a curable silicone base and varying volume amounts of expandable graphite between 5-25%. The key characteristic of these coatings is that they swell to ...

Numerical investigation of the effect of interfacial thermal resistance upon the thermal conductivity of copper/diamond composites 

Diamond is an extremely conductive material that would be ideal for dissipating heat in microelectronics if it were not for its high price tag. In this study, cost effective copper- and chromium-diamond composites (uncoated (Cu/D), Cu-coated (Cu/CuD), and Cr-coated (Cu/CrD)) were produced to determine their potential use in heat sink applications. A Thermal Constant Analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the matrix and composite samples using the ...

Thermal degradation and fire performance of intumescent silicone-based coatings

Intumescent paints protect steel structures from fires by creating insulative foams when heated above a critical temperature. This paper examines the fire resistance capabilities of phenyl silicone coatings in comparison to intumescent paints. A thermal constant analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the silicone-based coatings using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results showed that the silicone/modifier coating consistently had lower thermal conductivities than the silicone coating. At heightened ...
