In Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC), thermal spraying has become a preferred process in order to create functional and protective coatings. After a long period of research, SOFC is on the way to become a fully developed technology starting into mass production. Cost aspects of coating generation are becoming decisive. For this reason, thermal spraying has become the preferred process to apply e.g. Manganese Cobalt Iron Oxide (MCF) coatings which prevent the formation of volatile Cr oxides in the SOFC air supply and off-gas. Also Lanthanum Strontium Manganese Oxide (LSM) is now preferentially applied via thermal spraying. The presentation highlights the properties of commercially available spray powders for SOFC, their processing via different spray processes, and the properties of coatings achieved.
