This technology allows for the production of long HTSC coatings for the manufacture of tapes and wires as well as shields and antennas. Gas-thermal methods allow us to obtain films (10 – 100 µm) on non-oriented substrates of arbitrary shape. A gas-flame method of crystallization allows us to obtain dense coatings with high adhesion. These HTSC composites are easily workable to shape into the desired geometry. The critical temperature of the coatings corresponds to that of the starting HTSC ceramics; T c = 82 K for YBCO and T c = 81 K, T c = 103 K for BSCCO. Values of j c =2*103 A/cm2 at T = 77 K, H = 0 have been obtained. The proposed method has high productivity and low cost.
