Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are one of the options as auxiliary power units (APU) in transportation, e.g. in vehi-cles or in aircraft. In particular, metal supported SOFCs consisting of metallic frames and substrates coated with plasma sprayed functional layers have shown an excellent stability concerning redox cycling. In order to provide sufficient power, these single cells have to be assembled to stacks. To prevent short-circuiting the frame of each cell has to be electrically insulated from the neighbouring one. For that purpose a ceramic coating is applied on each metal frame by thermal spraying before it is brazed to other stack components. Such layers should at one hand show good wetting and adhesion to the silver based brazing materials. On the other hand it should maintain sufficient electrical resistance even at the fuel cell operating temperature. As the applied solder, which connects the cells and seals the gas manifold simultaneously, is an excellent electrical conductor, it is mandatory to prevent the brazing material from penetrating into the deposit. In this paper a description of the design and experiences with these plasma sprayed insulating layers is given.
