2016 Thermal Spray Roadmap now available online in Journal of Thermal Spray Technology

The 2016 Thermal Spray Roadmap is now available in the December issue of JTST. It aims to identify the current challenges limiting the evolution of thermal spray technologies and to propose research directions and priorities to meet these challenges. Forty-two international thermal spray experts present snapshots of the current state of their specific field, give their views on current challenges, and provide guidance as to the R & D required to meet these challenges.
This review is divided into three sections. The first identifies the challenges faced by existing and emerging spray processes and gives suggestions for meeting these challenges. The second deals with traditional functions of spray coatings (resistance to wear and corrosion) and more recent applications. The last section is an overview of the issues ahead and possible approaches to address these for biomedical, electronic, aerospace, and energy generation applications.
The 2016 Thermal Spray Roadmap was spearheaded and organized by current JTST Editor-in-Chief Armelle Vardelle and former Editor-in-Chief (and TSS Immediate Past President) Christian Moreau. The Journal of Thermal Spray Technology is the official journal of the Thermal Spray Society.
