A12O3 insulation coatings are grown on long-length stainless steel (SS) tapes using reel-to-reel sol-gel method for applications of HTS/LTS coils and magnets. Various ceramic solutions are prepared from Al based precursors, solvent and chelating agent, the coating are fabricated on SS substrates.Al2O3solution was successfully obtained using Al-sec-butoxide precursor, and iso- propanol and acetylacetone as solvent and chelating agents, respectively. In order to improve adhesion of Al2 O3 on the SS-304 tapes, triethanolamine was used in the solution. The residual stresses are investigated at different temperature ranges, between (630, 600, 580, and 550° C) and room temperature for different thicknesses (12, 10 and 7 μm). The maximum stress values are obtained as 0.756 GPa as tension on substrate (SS) for the 12 μm coating and 1.0 GPa as compression for the 7 μm A12O3 coating at 630° C. The surface morphology and microstructure of samples are characterized by a scanning electron microscope (SEM). SEM observation revealed that coatings have crack and mosaic structure. © 2009 IEEE.
