Ultra-high temperature ceramics (UHTCs) are materials defined as having melting points over 3000 °C and withstand temperatures beyond 2000 °C without losing functionality. As service environments become even more extreme, such materials will be needed for the next generation of aeronautic vehicles. The review paper first presents a general summary of UHTC properties, followed by a comprehensive summary of the processing routes and microstructures of current UHTC thermal spray coatings. Then, a detailed review of the oxidation and ablation resistance of UHTC thermal spray coatings is outlined. Finally, potential avenues for the development of new UHTC coating compositions are explored.
