Coating decreases material losses caused by scale formation during reheating
A coating layer serving as oxygen barrier to reduce scale formation during re-heating of steel was developed. By a chemical bottom-up synthesis defined properties of the coating layer like e. g. thin layers and appropriate adhesion and application properties were adjusted in a very exact way. The scale formation could be reduced by up to 80 % leading to a significantly higher material efficiency. The formed scale is very uniform and easy to remove leading to less surfacedefects caused by scale residues and less wear at the tools.
