Abstract

Ceramic nanomaterials have exhibited extraordinary characteristics, based in its low density, hardness and when properly engineered, good corrosion properties in high temperature applications. In the nanoscale world, we can find nanomaterials that do not necessarily apply to the correlation of strength and density. It has been studied that ceramic nanomaterials have some control boundaries that are critical in high temperature applications; grain sizes, grain boundaries density, operating conditions (thermal cycles), nano-crystalline structure and large voids (because of the porous nature of ceramic materials).

In this research paper, it will be discussed some of the most important applications, processing methods and several adhesion methods to metal substrates with the final purpose to enhance metal properties and mitigate high temperature corrosion. As a quick review, it will be discussed some of the environmental health & safety (EHS) concerns and some parallel experiments that could be done for reinforcing the investigations done in this subject.
