Ceramics are the inorganic materials with special qualities such as chemical stability, noncorrosiveness, and wear resistance, among others. Coating a material (substrate) with ceramics can improve the surface quality of the substrate. Mechanical properties of any material play a very important role in various engineering applications. However, most of the materials do not have all the properties (e.g., corrosion resistance, chemical stability, thermal stability, oxidation resistance) required for any on-field applications. To incorporate certain properties in the materials, especially on surfaces, coatings are used. In this chapter, classification of materials, the evolution of ceramic coating, the importance of coating, and ceramic material selection for coating are discussed in detail. Different coating materials along with examples of ceramic coating process (method of coating) and future aspects in ceramic material for coating are discussed.
