Ceramic Thermal Barrier Coatings

The temperature at which a turbine engine hot section runs is proportional to its power output, but also to the stress on its parts.  If run hotter, an engine makes more power, but typically has a shortened service life.  Ceramic thermal barrier coatings applied to turbine blades and nozzles slow the transfer of heat into these components.  Since heat is being removed from them by cooling airflow, these components run cooler for a given power output than they would if not coated.
This allows either the engine to run longer between overhauls at its nominal power, or to produce greater power while the overhaul interval is unchanged.
