The FORGE project has brought together a mix of partners from across Europe to develop cost-effective protective coatings for use in energy intensive industries.
These industries, including aluminium, cement, ceramics and steel, are subject to damage mechanisms such as corrosion, erosion, hydrogen embrittlement and surface oxidation.
The FORGE project consortium are bringing together expertise from universities, research institutes and SMEs to develop highly protective coatings, based on novel Compositionally Complex Materials (CCMs) - both metal alloys (CCAs) and ceramics (CCCs) – to deliver the required hardness, chemical stability and gas barrier properties for challenging applications.
These coatings will have positive impacts on costs, energy efficiencies and the environment by reducing CO2 emissions.
