Effect of Bond Coats on Thermal Shock Resistance of Thermal Barrier Coatings Deposited Onto Polymer Matrix Composites Via Air Plasma Spray Process

Thermal barrier coating systems with different bond coats were fabricated on polymer matrix composites via the air plasma spray process. During a thermal shock test at 400 °C, Zn and Al interlayers were helpful in improving the thermal shock resistance of coatings due to the low melting point. The coating system consisted of a soft zinc layer as a bond coat, and YSZ as a top coat exhibited the best thermal shock resistance, attributed to the lower residual stress and lower thermal stress in the Zn interlayer. The failure mechanism of the coating system was mainly ascribable to the residual stress derived from the deposition process, thermal stress, and further damage of the substrate.
