The decks of the latest British aircraft carriers Queen Elizabeth and Prince of Wales are coated with a special heat-resistant layer for resistance to jet jets F-35B

55
British Media publish information that the company Monitor Coatings Ltd commissioned by the United Kingdom Navy has developed a new heat-resistant coating for aircraft carrier decks. It is reported that we are talking primarily about the decks of aircraft carriers "Queen Elizabeth" ("Queen Elizabeth") and "Prince of Wales". The material states that the coating has a special composition that can withstand heating to 1,5 thousands of degrees Celsius. At the same time, the durability of using the new deck cover of an aircraft carrier will be at least half a century.


Creating a new heat-resistant coating due to the fact that the new British aircraft carriers are going to exploit the American aircraft F-35B - for resistance to red-hot jets.

The coating is a mixture of metals: titanium and aluminum. This metal powder is applied to the deck of aircraft carriers with a special robotic system using a layer of special thickness. The system heats the powder at a temperature of several thousand degrees Celsius, and it melts, forming the same protective layer that "meshes" with the metal surface of the deck. According to some reports, the thickness of the layer does not exceed 2,5 mm.

Such an alloy is not applied across the entire deck, but only where the take-off and landing of deck aircraft aviation.

Information portal of the company Monitor Coatings Ltd reports that work on the newest British aircraft carrier "Queen Elizabeth" are nearing completion. The total area of ​​the deck covering with the metallized heat-resistant layer will be about 2 thousand square meters.

Simon Pettit, senior naval officer of the British Navy, said that the new deck cover is only one of the innovations that were implemented on the largest ship of the British military fleet.

Work is also underway on the construction of the Prince of Wales aircraft carrier. The total value of these ships for the British Navy is (under contract) 6 billion pounds (8,7 billion US dollars).

        And at this temperature, will aluminum powder not burn, even if it is mixed with titanium powder?
        In fact, it would be better if they added saltpeter to the aluminum powder. smile

          "Thermal mixture (term - chemical, technical) (from the Greek. Therme - heat, heat) - a powdery mixture of aluminum (less often magnesium) with oxides of various metals (usually iron).

          When ignited, it burns out intensively with the release of a large amount of heat. Usually, it has a combustion temperature of 2300–2700 ° C, and in the case of using stronger oxidizing agents, such as nickel, chromium, or tungsten oxides, it is much higher. The mixture is ignited with a special igniter (a mixture of barium peroxide, magnesium and sodium). The quantitative ratio of the components of the mixture is determined by the stoichiometric ratio. The most common iron-aluminum termite: Fe2O3 = 75%; Al = 25% (containing calcined scale or rich iron ore) used for welding rails and for casting large parts. The ignition temperature of such a termite is about 1300 ° C (ignition mixture 800 ° C); the resulting iron and slag are heated to 2400 ° C. Sometimes, iron sheathing, alloying additives and fluxes are introduced into the iron termite. The process is carried out in a magnesite crucible. There are termites for welding telephone and telegraph wires, as well as wires of power lines. In military technology, termite is used as incendiary compounds. In the production of ferroalloys, termite with the addition of fluxes is called a charge.


          Burning thermite mixture
          In addition to aluminum, other metals can also be used:

          Mg (31%) + Fe2O3 (69%)
          Ca (43%) + Fe2O3 (57%)
          Ti (31%) + Fe2O3 (69%)
          Si (21%) + Fe2O3 (79%) "

          So it remains to add a little rust ;-) ...

          Alloys of titanium with aluminum are most important technically and industrially. The introduction of aluminum into technical titanium even in small quantities (up to 13%) allows to sharply increase the heat resistance of the alloy while reducing its density and cost. This alloy is an excellent structural material. The addition of 3-8% aluminum increases the conversion temperature of α-titanium to β-titanium. Aluminum is almost the only dopant stabilizer of α-titanium, increasing its strength with constant plasticity and viscosity properties of the titanium alloy and increasing its heat resistance, creep resistance and elastic modulus. This eliminates a significant disadvantage of titanium.


          Metallurgy is old data.

          Look at the price of our submarine "Kazan". On TV Zvezda named the real costs of its production.
          200 billion rubles.

    What are they D.B. Should we go to the north? Icebreakers are needed there, but small shavers don't have them. Squeeze ice and crush like a nut. Without icebreakers, these troughs are only for southern and temperate latitudes. Russia does not need them - there is no need to dominate the whole world. That's when we decide to seriously "wrestle" with the US and Britons with conventional weapons, then we need to build. We won't pull it right now.
