ATSC 2018

9th Asian Thermal Spray Conference   


November 16-18, 2018

Nanyang Technological University






We would like to invite you to 9th Asian Thermal Spray Conference (ATSC 2018), which will be held in Nanyang Technological University, Singapore on November 16-18, 2018. ATSC is currently held two times every three years except the year when the International Thermal Spray Conference is held in Asian countries. The purpose of this conference is to bring regularly all researchers involved in R&D, technicians in thermal spray job shops, manufacturers of thermal spray materials and equipment, managers of the companies involving in thermal spraying in Asian area to share the latest advancements of thermal spray technology. It is also expected that the conference will inspire and nurture young engineers and researchers in the region through international experiences.


The Technical Program at the 9th ATSC will address diverse aspects related to thermal spray science and technology, ranging from fundamental research to industrial applications. The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, any of the several themes listed below:


          Cold Spray/Kinetic Spray

          Solution and Suspension based Spray Processes

          Advances in Thermal Spray Processes

          Hybrid Spray Processes

          Thermal Barrier Coatings


          Repair & Refurbishment

          Wear & Corrosion Protection

          Novel Functional Applications

          Modelling & Simulation

          Process Control & Diagnostics


          Processing-Structure-Property correlations

          Advanced Characterization of Coatings

          Mechanical Properties of Coatings

          Environmental/Occupational Safety
