Thermal properties

 

Thermal properties are important to a protective coating in a number of applications, such as aerospace components. While thermal properties are difficult to characterize the video link below demonstrates how OxSiCoated aluminum can withstand direct heat to the point that the substrate softens and melts away without substantial damage to the coating itself. After experiencing extreme heat (700 degrees Celsius) the transparent qualities (although with some debris from the melted aluminum) of the undamaged coating are clearly visible.
