The Ministry of Defence is on a continue search how to improve products and machines which operates in all kinds of environments. There is being done a lot of research how thermal sprayed coatings behave. The results are in most cases overwhelming. Without thermal spraying, the engines of fighter planes wouldn't be as efficient as they are now. Aludra's engineers are on a continue search how to improve properties and the behavior of products in defence. Aludra is for example involved spraying the afterburners for the new jet fighter the "Joint Strike Fighter". The after burners have to be coated with a high quality thermal barrier coating.
