About Our Abradable Coating Method

Abradable coatings are an economical way to improve the efficiency of engines, compressors and pumps. The abradable material is applied when minimal clearance is needed between the blade tips and the casing. The benefits of an abradable coating from Aerofab include resistance to oxidation, impact and thermal shock, as well as a durable internal strength and reduced fuel consumption.

What is Abradable Coating?

Abradable coating material is made to rub away when in contact with another highly abrasive material while leaving the underlying surface damage free. In the end, the coating suffers the wear and tear, and the important structure underneath is protected. Abradable coatings provide an environmentally-friendly option to improve engine efficiency.
