Sufficient electrical insulation must be ensured between the individual connection plates made of the ODS alloy in planar high-temperature fuel cells. In this paper, APS coatings and coating systems consisting of zirconium dioxide or zirconium dioxide/aluminum oxide are sprayed onto structured plates made of ODS-chromium alloy, qualified and implemented. The electrical insulation of both the coatings and the sealing glass composites is determined at 850 deg C and 950 deg C. The gas resistance of the coated sealing glass composite samples to air, hydrogen and hydrogen/water is determined experimentally. The coating technology is developed for small series production and successfully implemented on a large joined multi-cell unit with basic dimensions of 260 x 260 millimeter square. The paper demonstrates that this coating technology is sufficiently developed for industrial applications. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
