One of the important challenges is to develop coating materials for thermochemical containment vessels and pipes that encounters the highly corrosive and harsh environment produced by the molten salt at high temperature. Overall assessment based on the evidence from previous investigations in this area is that none of the high-performance structural materials (coating, substrates) are likely to survive for an extended period in the high temperature corrosive environment. There are innovative means and methods which could be considered to have sustainable coating-substrate assembly and extended lifetime.
