This May, Innovnano presented a
completely innovative product. Non transformable tetragonal zirconium (Nano
T’Z) stands out from conventional products for its nanometric structure
and, subsequently, for its performance in the final application.
Non transformable tetragonal zirconium is basically used in preparing
coatings that act as highly efficient thermal barriers. The main
applications of such thermal barriers are aerospace industry (turbine
coating), aeronautics, vehicles (engine parts coating), and gas turbines
at combined cycle plants.
This nanostructured Zirconium has
significant advantages against other currently sold products: Lower
thermal diffusion, that allows for increasing the engines’ temperature
of operation, which subsequently increases their efficiency; higher
resistance to thermal shock; 2 to 3 times longer life cycle,
significantly reducing maintenance costs; mechanical properties that are
clearly better than those of conventional products.
