Applications which fit the following description should be submitted under
funding opportunity title of Nano-Technology for Coatings in Coal-Fired
Environments (DE-PS26-05NT42244-02).

In order to achieve higher operating temperatures in fossil energy systems,

where sulfur and water vapor can cause severe oxidation problems, the
resistance of Fe- and Ni-base alloys must be improved. In power
applications, typical examples of surface damage include: (1) accelerated
high-temperature fire-side corrosion associated with the presence of molten

alkali-containing salts; (2) accelerated medium-temperature fire-side
associated with the presence of a low oxygen activity environment and
and (3) steam-side oxidation of tubing, piping and valves in fossil
Grant applications are sought to develop protective coatings and coating
techniques for the Fe- and Ni-based alloys, and for nickel-based
superalloys as
well. The coatings must provide superior corrosion resistance in
sulfidizing, carburizing, and water-containing environments, should show
adhesion on the substrate (the tube outsides), as well as slide- and
anti-stick-properties on the surface at the same time. Nano-technology
approaches are encouraged. The protective coatings and coating techniques
should be optimally designed as part of the overall power generation
should be maintainable, and should be capable of non-intrusive evaluation
determine remaining life. To this end, model coatings should be fabricated
corrosion testing and diffusion studies in order to develop a comprehensive

lifetime evaluation approach for the coatings. At least one ferritic and
austenitic alloy should be selected as substrate materials for study. The
approach should provide sufficient data regarding lifetime performance in
applicable environments.
