Multidisciplinary and cutting edge research and technologic development through enhanced technology application with remarkable cost-benefit ratio that leads to high end research in the field of thermal spray by guaranteeing the formation of excellence human resources, who can directly contribute to advances related to thermal spray technologies and a close link between research and industry.
To be referent as on thermal spray technology laboratories in Mexico and to be leaders in the production of scientific and technological knowledge as well as the formation of independent and reliable researchers and technologists with the capabilities required by the industry for solving thermal spray related tasks.
Goals of CENAPROT:
- To develop scientific forefront research (synthesis, processing, performance characterization) of coatings obtained by thermal spray techniques.
To form excellence human resources (undergraduate and postgraduate studies) on high-end thermal spray applications.
To encourage and promote researching formation of undergraduate students in pertinent thermal spray projects and create collaborative links between CENAPROT and local universities to disseminate service capabilities of the laboratory.
To reinforce link activities and research projects with regional and foreign universities, research centers and industries making clear emphasis in aeronautical, automotive, power generator and biomedical industries in order to contribute to scientific knowledge and obtain scientific products as patents, papers publication, and copyrights.
