High-temperature oxidation behavior of plasma-sprayed NiCrAlY/TiO2 and NiCrAlY/Cr2O3/YSZ coatings on titanium alloy

Abstract

The 70% NiCrAlY + 30% TiO2 and 70% NiCrAlY + 25% Cr2O3 + 5% YSZ metallic coatings are sprayed on titanium-15 alloy of ASTM B338, Grade 2, by using the plasma spray coating technology. Cyclic oxidation studies are conducted on the uncoated and coated alloys at 700 °C under static air environment. The kinetics of oxidation is studied by using the thermo-gravimetric method. Phase, microstructural, and chemical analysis tests are performed on as-sprayed and oxidized coatings. The coated alloys are found to be more resistant when compared to the uncoated alloys. The NiCrAlY + Cr2O3 + YSZ coating is found to be more protective when compared to NiCrAlY + TiO2 coating. It is concluded that the formation of Cr2O3, NiCr2O4, and Al2O3 is attributed to the development of oxidation resistance in the coatings.
