Register for the Upcoming FORGE Project Webinar

Wed, 17 April, 2024

You can find out about the work of the FORGE project in developing wear-resistant compositionally complex alloy (CCA) coatings at our upcoming online event.

Experts from TWI, the Materials Innovation Centre (MATIC), and OCAS N.V. (OnderzoeksCentrum voor de Aanwending van Staal) will present at the online event, ‘Novel Compositionally Complex Alloy (CCA) Coatings for Enhanced Wear Resistance,’ on 29 May, 2024, from 13:00 to 14:00 GMT.


Also known as medium-entropy or high entropy alloys, CCAs have been gaining attention from a range of industries for their tailored properties, such as exceptional tensile strength, ductility, fracture toughness, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance. These properties, which are effective across a variety of temperatures, allow these materials to withstand harsh conditions and environments, making them ideal for a range of applications.

The FORGE project team focused on the development of novel CCAs with three key performance targets; CO2 corrosion resistance, H2 embrittlement resistance, and wear resistance.

This webinar will focus on novel CCAs developed for wear resistance, with an investigation of how the CCA deposition parameters were developed, how the composition was designed, the microstructural evolution and solidification behaviour in CCA coatings, and how the coatings performed to resist wear in simulated environments.


The webinar will feature three expert speakers from the FORGE project consortium:

  • Dibakor Boruah, Senior Project Leader - Surface, Corrosion, and Interface Engineering
  • Deepak Sharma, Research Associate, Materials Innovation Centre (MATIC)
  • Alfonso Navarro López, Industrial Engineer and Materials Scientist, OCAS N.V. (OnderzoeksCentrum voor de Aanwending van Staal)

The FORGE project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (Grant agreement 958457).
