Jülich Thermal Spray Center (JTSC)

A new research and innovation infrastructure of Forschungszentrum Jülich.


Thermal spray is a fast growing coating technology with an annual growth rate of about 8% driven by the world-wide increasing demands in electricity production, air transport, automotive manufacturing, and other advanced technologies [The 2016 Thermal Spray Roadmap, Journal of Thermal Spray Technology, 2016]. Especially high-end coating processes and materials solutions are of extreme interest for industrial applications.

Jülich Thermal Spray Center offers a unique infrastructure composed of thermal spray processes (for a total investment value well exceeding 5 million €) combined with unique expertise built up over many years. The current installation of new spray equipment at IEK-1 (Materials Synthesis and Processing) completes this suite of facilities which is unique both from a national and international perspective. The installed facilities cover the complete range of advanced process parameters as shown here:
