Environmental Response of Plasma Sprayed Nanostructured Coatings
Erosion corrosion and environmental chamber corrosion studies conducted on plasma sprayed samples from three different spray dried and densified nanopowders showed good resistance to corrosion. A dense, uniform and even distribution of splats and small number of microvoids and pores offered a high resistance to erosion-corrosion in sodium chloride polystyrene slurry. The coatings offer a high resistance in salt spray chamber environment.
