A new dedicated website has launched to support and provide information about the FORGE Project.
The project aims to develop cost-effective protective coatings to provide the necessary chemical stability, hardness and gas barrier properties for a range of challenging applications.
These coatings would be based on novel compositionally complex materials (CCMs), including both metal alloys (CCAs) and ceramics (CCCs) and would meet the needs of industry to improve the tolerance capabilities of base structural materials to damage mechanisms such as erosion, corrosion, surface oxidation and hydrogen embrittlement.
This would improve processes such as waste heat recovery, carbon capture, alternative process chemistries and high-energy processes to increase output and efficiency while reducing greenhouse gas emissions for industries such as steel aluminium and ceramics.
Using these coatings to improve the lifetime of materials will help reduce costs, increase energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Grant agreement 958457
