Executive Summary

Ceramic coatings are used for surface modification, and they have achieved a significant place in the industrial environment over the past decades. High-performance ceramic coatings are an established market, but new high-performance ceramic coating technologies, including materials and processes, are constantly being developed. 

The accessibility of these new coating technologies augments the range of possible ceramic coating applications and substrate materials, comprising fiber-reinforced polymeric (FRP) composite components, such as aerospace parts, rolls for printing, high-pressure textile trades hydraulic cylinders, and camshafts. In the meantime, the availability and commercialization of new high-performance coating technologies change the internal requirements in industries where they are even now used, such as cutting tool inserts.
