Aircraft metallic materials >> Vacuum Plasma High Energy Technology (VPTHE method) for the production of coatings and ion surface treatment >> Extra capabilities
Ion etching of structural materials surface
Control of macrostructure of cast turbine blades with equiaxial and directional crystal structure (ion etching with the depth of several m m and the treatment affected area << 1 µm ).
Removal of defective surface layer of the most crucial parts (repair of turbine blades).
A 15-20% increase in low-cycle fatigue strength of the most crucial p arts of heat-resistant alloys, for instance GTE discs.
Ion saturation of parts surface in metallic plasma
Multifold increase in compressor steel resistance to salt corrosion (titanizing, titanium-zirconizing and aluminium-cobalt-yttrium-ciliconizing of surfaces (with the depth of 15-20 µm).
Control of structural-phase state and physical properties of surface.
Creation of effective barrier layers for protective coatings and increase in serviceability of parts with ion-plasma coatings.
