Thermal Spraying of Silica
Hi everyone,

I really need some advices.

I would like to coat some substrates with silica to see its thermal insulation capabilities. Will plasma spray work?

If not, which technique would you suggest?

Thanks a lot!

Quartz glass (silica) has under normal conditions, the coefficient of linear thermal expansion of about 0.5x10-6K-1. This is much less than that of all metals, however a coating of pure silica glass on the metal is not possible in any way. Quite another matter - glasses on the basis of SiO2 glass (silicate glasses). There glasses with a coefficient of linear expansion of 0.5 to 20x10-6K-1, so it is always possible to find a suitable glass for a particular substrate. Sprayed powder glasses can be as plasma spraying, and simple flame spraying. To obtain a dense glass coating on metal substrates, they need to melt. The thermal conductivity of most silicate glasses under normal conditions is less than 1 W/mK.
