Erosion Resistant Coatings for Shaft-Driven Compressor (SDC) Impellers
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
This phase 1 SBIR program will focus on the application and testing of Gneration 5 erosion resistant, multi-functional nickel boron coating that combines extreme hardness and abrasion resistance with very low friction properties, temperature tolerance and bond strength, deposited on Ti 6AL-4V Shaft-Driven Compressor impellers with complex airfoil geometry. The program will also investigate the feasibility of co-depositing nano particles of refractory carbides to further enhance the erosion resistance of nickel boron. An engineering study will be conducted to investigate the feasibility of economic SDC impeller airfoil repair and restoration using unique metal deposition and finishing techniques.
