The NanoSteel Company, a leader in nanostructured steel alloy surface technologies, announces that a presentation highlighting how hardness and wear resistance of NanoSteel's Super Hard Steel alloys for thermal spray coatings can increase service life in elevated temperatures will be delivered at the 2010 International Thermal Spray Conference and Exhibition (ITSC) in Singapore, May 3-5.
Daniel Branagan Ph.D., NanoSteel's chief technical officer, will present "Novel In-Situ Transformable Coating for Elevated-Temperature Applications" during the Nanomaterial Coatings 2 session at 9:40 a.m. on Wednesday, May 5. The presentation will cover how exposure to elevated temperatures in coal-fired or biomass power plant boilers transforms NanoSteel coatings from an amorphous to a full nanocrystalline state. When this occurs, the microhardness of NanoSteel coatings increases dramatically and results in significant improvements in abrasion and erosion resistance.
Branagan will also co-chair the Properties 3 session at 1:40 p.m. on Wednesday, May 5.
