How to protect steel from corrosion?
On March 25, 2015 an employee of the All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Aviation Materials (VIAM) Denis Alexandrov has attended the sixth interdisciplinary conference "Corrosion protection - 2015".
During the conference Denis Alexandrov has presented the "Corrosion protection of steel turbine engine compressor blades" report. In particular he has spoken about the protection of steel compressor blades from salt corrosion, voiced the existing approaches to improve it and presented serial corrosion-ion-plasma coatings developed in VIAM.
The VIAM representative paid a special place in his report to the new corrosion-erosion-resistant coating of Nanolayer TiN / CrN system for steel compressor blades protection obtained by ion-assisted plasma deposition. "This coating allows operation of GTE steel compressor blades in all-climatic conditions increasing the corrosion and erosion resistance of metal," - he said.
It is noteworthy that VIAM was awarded a diploma for participation in the conference.
Paint, materials, technologies and solutions of leading manufacturers of paints and engineering companies of Russia, the USA, Germany, Finland, Ukraine, Belarus and other countries were represented at the conference. The reports of leading industry experts reflected the results of the latest developments in the field of corrosion protection, insulation, fire protection and industrial safety.
