HARTFORD, CT - Highlighting new technology in thermal spray for the aerospace industry, the ASM Thermal Spray Society will hold an Aerospace Coatings Symposium on Oct. 15-16, 2008, at the Sheraton Hotel at Bradley International Airport, near Hartford, CT.

The symposium will offer two tracks. A scientific/engineering focus will cover new technology trends, existing and future coating application requirements, and a technical discussion on case studies and applications (including wear, oxidation, hot corrosion, heat barriers, general wear and part restoration). A focus geared to applicators, technicians, quality, EH&S personnel and process engineers will cover environmental health, safety issues, testing and characterization, quality and process improvements, pre- and post-processing, and metallography.

On October 13-14, 2008, TSS will sponsor a two-day educational short course, “Materials and Processes for High-Temperature Gas Turbine Components.”
