LPPS Thin Film is a new technology for the production of thin functional coatings. The coatings produced can fill the well known gap of coating thickness between conventional thin films (PVD, CVD and others) and conventional thermally sprayed coatings (Plasma, HVOF and others). The application is successful, if the advantages of the new technology (large areas can be dense coated within a very short time) are combined with the specific properties of thermally sprayed coatings to the benefit of the intended application. Beside the technology of LPPS Thin Film and it's characteristics the paper will summarise important properties of Alumina described in the literature and present some corresponding properties of Aluminium oxide coatings produced by LPPS Thin Film.
