Study of high temperature behavior of nanostructured elaborated by flame and plasma spraying from powders and suspensions

Abstract : The research topic of this thesis is devoted on the study of the behavior of nanostructured coatings based on zirconia, which extends from the characterization of raw materials through manufacturing, characterization of the properties of the coatings and then end up in the study of their behavior at high temperature, especially in strong environments to make them comparable. Three kinds of techniques were used for manufacturing the coatings: flame spraying (FS), atmospheric plasma spraying (APS) and suspensions plasma spraying (SPS).Three types of substrates were used and characterized for manufacturing the coatings: a low carbon steel (AISI/SAE12L15), stainless steel 304L and superalloy Inconel 718. A surface treatment of blasting with corundum was applied to all substrates in order to generate a noticeable roughness (> 5 µm), then apply a bond coat of Ni-Al-Mo for the technique FS and a bond coat of NiCrAlCo-Y2O3 for the technique APS and SPS. The coatings were characterized to know and correlate the morphology of the cross section and surface, elemental composition of the zones of interest, phases, thickness, porosity, microhardness, vibrational groups, corrosion resistance and wear resistance. Additionally, the most important was to characterize the high temperature performance of the coating by tests as thermal shock, isothermal oxidation and hot corrosion with salts. For knowing the behavior of the coatings after being subjected to these tests, a study of the morphology of the surface and cross-section, elemental composition and phases analysis in the regions of interest have also been carried out.
