    Corrosion behavior of HVAF- and HVOF-sprayed high-chromium Fe-based coatings2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fe-based coatings with three particular elemental compositions and two different powder particle size were prepared by high-velocity air fuel (HVAF) and high-velocity oxy fuel (HVOF) techniques. The corrosion behavior of which were comparatively studied in 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution. The results indicated that the coatings produced by HVAF process exhibited denser structure with lower porosity. Polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) tests indicated that the HVAF coatings provided better corrosion resistance than the HVOF coatings. The presence of defects was significant in HVOF coatings. The investigation illustrated that the corrosion paths initiated and grow through defects of the coating. Furthermore, adding Cr strongly improved the corrosion resistance of the coatings. The results confirmed that the cheap HVAF process could be a potential alternative to HVOF to fabricate Fe-based coatings for industrial applications.

    High-Temperature Corrosion of HVAF-Sprayed Ni-Based Coatings for Boiler Applications2019In: Oxidation of Metals, ISSN 0030-770X, E-ISSN 1573-4889, Vol. 91, no 5-6, p. 729-747Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The present study investigates the initial corrosion behaviour of HVAF-sprayed NiCr, NiAl and NiCrAlY coatings in two different environments, O 2 + H 2 O and O 2 + H 2 O + KCl at 600 °C for up to 168 h in order to evaluate the possibility of utilizing such coatings in biomass- and waste-fired boilers. SEM/EDX analysis showed that all coatings displayed a protective behaviour in O 2 + H 2 O. Upon addition of KCl (O 2 + H 2 O + KCl), the corrosion behaviour of the NiCr coating drastically changed as it formed a thick oxide layer and displayed major chlorine diffusion down to the substrate. The NiCrAlY coating displayed a significantly better corrosion resistance with only minor oxide formation. The NiAl coating exhibited a protective behaviour similar to when exposed in the absence of KCl indicating that a thin protective oxide has formed on the coating surface. The performance of the NiAl and NiCrAlY coatings is promising for future studies with long-term exposures in more corrosive environments such as in a biomass- and waste-fired boiler. © 2019, The Author(s).

    High-temperature corrosion performance of HVAF-sprayed NiCr, NiAl, and NiCrAlY coatings with alkali sulfate/chloride exposed to ambient air2019In: Corrosion Science, ISSN 0010-938X, E-ISSN 1879-0496, article id 108066Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The high-temperature corrosion of high velocity air-fuel (HVAF) thermal spray Ni21Cr, Ni5Al, and Ni21Cr7AlY coatings was investigated at 600 °C for 168 h in ambient air under KCl and 50-50 mol% KCl–K2SO4 salts. Chlorination-oxidation cycle and breakdown of the corrosion products layer were the dominant corrosion mechanism in the chromia-forming Ni21Cr and Ni21Cr7AlY coatings exposed to KCl. KCl–K2SO4 was less corrosive to the chromia-forming coatings as K2SO4 was less reactive to the protective Cr-rich oxide. The alumina-forming NiAl exhibited a better corrosion performance under KCl, though it partially suffered from selective sulfidation when exposed to the mixed salt. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd

    KCI-induced corrosion behavior of HVAF-sprayed Ni-based coatings in ambient air2017In: Proceedings of the International Thermal Spray Conference & Exposition (ITSC 2017), Curran Associates, Inc. , 2017, Vol. 2, p. 946-950Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is well known that the presence of KCl deposited on superheater tubes in biomass- and waste-fired boilers leads to a severe corrosion and premature damage. In order to protect such critical components which are routinely exposed to aggressive environments, thermal spray coatings are frequently proposed as a potential solution. By virtue of the techno-commercial benefits that provides as a direct outcome of its ability to cost-effectively deposit coatings virtually free of porosity and in situ formed oxides, the high velocity air-fuel (HVAF) process offers a particularly attractive approach. In the present work, the influence of KCl on the oxidation behavior of four HVAF-sprayed Ni-based coatings (Ni21Cr, Ni5AI, Ni21Cr7AI1Y, and Ni21Cr9Mo) has been investigated. The coatings were deposited onto specimens of 16Mo3 steel, a widely used boiler tube material. High temperature corrosion tests were carried out in ambient air at 600°C, with 0.1 mg/cm2 KCl being sprayed onto the samples prior to the exposure. Uncoated substrates and an identical test environment without KCl were used as reference. SEM/EDS and XRD techniques were utilized to characterize the as-sprayed and exposed samples. The results showed that the small addition of KCl significantly accelerated damage to the coatings. It was further revealed that the alumina-forming NiAl coating was capable of forming a more protective oxide scale compared to other chromia and mixed-oxide scale forming coatings. In general, the oxidation resistance of the coatings based on the kinetic studies had the following ranking (from the best to the worst): NiAl >NiCr> NiCrAlY> NiCrMo. © Copyright 2017 by DVS Media GmbH.

    Abstract [en]

    KCl-induced high temperature corrosion behavior of four HVAF-sprayed Ni-based coatings (Ni21Cr, Ni5Al, Ni21Cr7Al1Y, and Ni21Cr9Mo) under KCl deposit has been investigated in ambient air at 600°C up to 168h. The coatings were deposited onto 16Mo3 steel - a widely used boiler tube material.Uncoated substrate, 304L and Sanicro25 were used as reference materials in the test environment.SEM/EDS and XRD techniques were utilized to characterize the as-sprayed and exposed samples.The results showed that the small addition of KCl significantly accelerated degradation to the coatings. All coatings provided better corrosion resistance compared to the reference materials. The alumina-forming Ni5Al coating under KCl deposit was capable of forming a more protective oxide scale compared to the chromia-forming coatings as penetration of Cl through diffusion paths was hindered. Both active corrosion and chromate formation mechanisms were found to be responsible for Page 1 of 23ASM the corrosion damages. The corrosion resistance of the coatings based on the microstructure analysis and kinetics had the following ranking (from the best to worst): Ni5Al >Ni21Cr> Ni21Cr7Al1Y>Ni21Cr9Mo.

    Microstructure Development in Track-by-Track Melting of EBM-Manufactured Alloy 7182018In: Proceedings of the 9th International Symposium on Superalloy 718 & Derivatives: Energy, Aerospace, and Industrial Applications / [ed] Ott, E., Liu, X., Andersson, J., Bi, Z., Bockenstedt, K., Dempster, I., Groh, J., Heck, K., Jablonski, P., Kaplan, M., Nagahama, D. and Sudbrack, C., Springer, 2018, p. 643-654Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Electron beam melting (EBM) is a powder-bed fusion process within the group of additive manufacturing (AM) technology that is used to fabricate high performance metallic parts. Nickel-Iron base superalloys, such as Alloy 718, are subjected to successive heating and cooling at temperatures in excess of 800 °C during the EBM process. Characterization of the dendritic structure, carbides, Laves and δ-phase were of particular interest in this study. These successive thermal cycles influence the microstructure of the material resulting in a heterogeneous structure, especially in the building direction. Hence, the aim of this study was to gain increased fundamental understanding of the relationship between the processing history and the microstructure formed within a single layer. Different numbers of tracks with equal heights were for this purpose produced, varying from one to ten tracks. All tracks used the same process parameters regardless of number and/or position. Microstructure characteristics (sub-grain structure, grain structure and phases) were analyzed by optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy equipped with energy disperse spectroscopy and electron backscatter diffraction. The direction of dendrites changed in the overlap zones within the tracks due to re-melting of material in the overlap zone. The primary dendrite arm spacings slightly increased along multi-tracks owing to a slight decrease in cooling rate by addition of the next tracks. Epitaxial growth of grains were observed in all samples due to partial re-melting of grains in previous layers and surface nucleation was also found to occur in all tracks.

    EBM-manufactured single tracks of Alloy 718: Influence of energy input and focus offset on geometrical and microstructural characteristics2019In: Materials Characterization, ISSN 1044-5803, E-ISSN 1873-4189, Vol. 148, p. 88-99Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Electron beam melting-powder bed fusion (EBM-PBF) is an additive manufacturing process, which is able to produce parts in layer-by-layer fashion from a 3D model data. Currently application of this technology in parts manufacturing with high geometrical complexity has acquired growing interest in industry. To recommend the EBM process into industry for manufacturing parts, improved mechanical properties of final part must be obtained. Such properties highly depend on individual single melted track and single layer. In EBM, interactions between the electron beam, powder, and solid underlying layer affect the geometrical (e.g., re-melt depth, track width, contact angle, and track height) and microstructural (e.g., grain structure, and primary dendrite arm spacing) characteristics of the melted tracks. The core of the present research was to explore the influence of linear energy input parameters in terms of beam scanning speed, beam current as well as focus offset and their interactions on the geometry and microstructure of EBM-manufactured single tracks of Alloy 718. Increased scanning speed led to lower linear energy input values (<0.9 J/mm) in an specific range of the focus offset (0–10 mA) which resulted in instability, and discontinuity of the single tracks as well as balling effect. Decreasing the scanning speed and increasing the beam current resulted in higher melt pool depth and width. By statistical evaluations, the most influencing parameters on the geometrical features were primarily the scanning speed, and secondly the beam current. Primary dendrite arm spacing (PDAS) slightly decreased by increasing the scanning speed using lower beam current values as the linear energy input decreased. By increasing the linear energy input, the chance of more equiaxed grain formation was high, however, at lower linear energy input, mainly columnar grains were observed. The lower focus offset values resulted in more uniform grains along the 〈001〉 crystallographic direction. © 2018 Elsevier Inc.

    Influence of build layout and orientation on microstructural characteristics of electron beam melted Alloy 7182018In: The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, ISSN 0268-3768, E-ISSN 1433-3015, Vol. 99, no S1, p. 2903-2913Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Effects of build layout and orientation consisting of (a) height from the build plate (Z-axis), (b) distance between samples, and (c) location in the build plate (X-Y plane) on porosity, NbC fraction, and hardness in electron beam melted (EBM) Alloy 718 were studied. The as-built samples predominantly showed columnar structure with strong ˂001˃ crystallographic orientation parallel to the build direction, as well as NbC and ÎŽ-phase in inter-dendrites and grain boundaries. These microstructural characteristics were correlated with the thermal history, specifically cooling rate, resulted from the build layout and orientation parameters. The hardness and NbC fraction of the samples increased around 6% and 116%, respectively, as the height increased from 2 to 45 mm. Moreover, by increasing the height, formation of ÎŽ-phase was also enhanced associated with lower cooling rate in the samples built with a greater distance from the build plate. However, the porosity fraction was unaffected. Increasing the sample gap from 2 to 10 mm did not change the NbC fraction and hardness; however, the porosity fraction increased by 94%. The sample location in the build chamber influenced the porosity fraction, particularly in interior and exterior areas of the build plate. The hardness and NbC fraction were not dependent on the sample location in the build chamber. © 2018, The Author(s).

    Influence of successive thermal cycling on microstructure evolution of EBM-manufactured alloy 718 in track-by-track and layer-by-layer design2018In: Materials & design, ISSN 0264-1275, E-ISSN 1873-4197, Vol. 160, p. 427-441Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Successive thermal cycling (STC) during multi-track and multi-layer manufacturing of Alloy 718 using electron beam melting (EBM) process leads to a microstructure with a high degree of complexity. In the present study, a detailed microstructural study of EBM-manufactured Alloy 718 was conducted by producing samples in shapes from one single track and single wall to 3D samples with maximum 10 longitudinal tracks and 50 vertical layers. The relationship between STC, solidification microstructure, interdendritic segregation, phase precipitation (MC, δ-phase), and hardness was investigated. Cooling rates (liquid-to-solid and solid-to-solid state) was estimated by measuring primary dendrite arm spacing (PDAS) and showed an increased cooling rate at the bottom compared to the top of the multi-layer samples. Thus, microstructure gradient was identified along the build direction. Moreover, extensive formation of solidification micro-constituents including MC-type carbides, induced by micro-segregation, was observed in all the samples. The electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) technique showed a high textured structure in 〈001〉 direction with a few grains misoriented at the surface of all samples. Finer microstructure and possibility of more γ″ phase precipitation at the bottom of the samples resulted in slightly higher (~11%) hardness values compared to top of the samples. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd

    Chlorine-induced high-temperature corrosion and erosion-corrosion of HVAF and HVOF-sprayed amorphous Fe-based coatings2019In: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 1, p. 20-35Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chlorine-induced high-temperature corrosion and erosion-corrosion behavior of amorphous Fe-based coatings sprayed by high velocity air-fuel (HVAF) and high velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) techniques were investigated. The coated specimens were first exposed to isothermal high-temperature corrosion at 600 °C in ambient air with and without KCl. The exposed specimens were then subjected to alumina erodent. The as-sprayed HVAF coating showed a more compact and uniform microstructure with a higher hardness leading to higher corrosion and erosion-corrosion resistance. After erosion, all the coatings similarly exhibited a combined brittle/ductile damage to surface oxide scale that previously formed in the corrosive environment. The corrosion and erosion-corrosion behavior of the coatings primarily relied on the uniformity of coatings’ microstructure and distribution of alloying elements to form the protective oxide scale in the corrosive environment, which can resist against erodent in the erosive media. © 2019 Elsevier B.V.

    Influence of thermal post treatments on microstructure and oxidation behavior of EB-PBF manufactured Alloy 7182019In: Materials Characterization, ISSN 1044-5803, E-ISSN 1873-4189, Vol. 150, p. 236-251Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The effect of thermal post treatments consisting of heat treatment (HT), hot isostatic pressing (HIP), and combined HIP-HT on microstructure and oxidation behavior of Alloy 718 manufactured by electron beam powder bed fusion (EB-PBF) technique was investigated. Oxidation of the as-built and post-treated specimens was performed in ambient air at 650, 750, and 850 °C for up to 168 h. Directional columnar-grained microstructure, pores and fine Nb-rich carbides were observed in the as-built specimen. The HT specimen presented the columnar microstructure, plate-like δ phase at grain boundaries, and pores. The dominant grain crystallographic orientation was changed from 〈001〉 in the as-built specimen to 〈101〉 after HT. No grain boundary δ phase was observed in the HIPed specimen, but recrystallization occurred in both the HIP and HIP-HT specimens due to a rapid cooling after HIPing motivating the nucleation of fine grains with limited time to grow. After oxidation exposure at 650 and 750 °C for 168 h, no big difference between weight changes of the as-built and post-treated specimens was noted, whereas at 850 °C, the combined HIP-HT specimen showed the most promising corrosion resistance with the least weight change. At 850 °C, a protective scale of Cr 2 O 3 rich in Cr, Ti, and Ni as well as an internal oxide (branched structure of alumina) developed in all the specimens, while, only a protective Cr 2 O 3 scale was found at 650 and 750 °C. The HIP-HT specimen at 850 °C developed an oxide scale, which was denser and more adherent in comparison to the oxide scales formed on the other three specimens, associated with its limited defect distribution and more homogenized microstructure. Moreover, the δ phase formed close to the surface of the exposed specimens during the oxidation exposure at 850 °C most probably led to nucleation and growth of the oxide scale. © 2019 Elsevier Inc.

    Corrosion Behavior of HVAF-Sprayed Bi-Layer Coatings2016Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In a variety of engineering applications, components are subjected to corrosive environment. Protective coatings are essential to improve the functional performances and/or extend the lifetime of the components. Thermal sprayingas a cost-effective coating deposition technique offers high flexibility in coatings' chemistry/morphology/microstructure design. However, the inherent pores formed during spraying limit the use of coatings for corrosion protection. The recently developed supersonic spray method, High-Velocity-Air-Fuel (HVAF), brings significant advantages in terms of cost and coating properties. Although severely reduced, the pores are not completely eliminated even with the HVAF process. In view of the above gap to have a high quality coating, bi-layer coatings have been developed to improve the corrosion resistance of the coatings. In a bi-layer coating, an intermediate layer is deposited on the substrate before spraying the coating. The electrochemical behavior of each layer is important to ensure a good corrosion protection. The corrosion behavior of the layers strongly depends on coating composition and microstructure, which are affected by feedstock material and spraying process. Therefore, the objective of the researchis to explore the relationships between feedstock material, spraying process, microstructure and corrosion behavior of bi-layer coatings. A specific motivationis to understand the corrosion mechanisms of the intermediate layer which forms the basis for developing superior protective coatings. Cr3C2-NiCr top layer and intermediate layers (Fe-, Co- and Ni-based) were sprayed by different thermal spraying processes. Microstructure analysis, as well as various corrosion tests, e.g., electrochemical, salt spray and immersion tests were performed. The results showed a direct link between the corrosion potential (Ecorr) of the intermediate layer and the corrosion mechanisms. It was found that the higher corrosion resistance of Ni-based coatings than Fe- and Co-based coatings was due to higher Ecorr of the coating in the galvanic couple with top layers. Inter-lamellar boundaries and interconnected pores reduced the corrosion resistance of intermediate layers, however a sufficient reservoir of protective scale-forming elements (such as Cr or Al) improved the corrosion behavior.

    Ni-based coatings for high temperature corrosion protection2018Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Biomass/waste-fired boilers severely suffer from high temperature corrosion of critical load-bearing components, e.g. water-wall and superheater tubes, due to presence of Cl-containing corrosive species. Deposition of a dense and adherent Ni-based coating by high velocity air-fuel (HVAF) thermal spray technique is a promising approach to extend the component's lifetime and, hence, increase the thermal/electrical efficiency of the boilers. In this research, high temperature corrosion of candidate Ni-based coatings –Ni21Cr, Ni21Cr7AlY, Ni5Al, Ni21Cr9Mo, Ni21Cr9Mo-SiO2 – sprayed by HVAF has been investigated through detailed laboratory studies in ambient air, moisture and HCl-laden environments. The exposures were conducted at 600 °C for up to 168 h with and without presence of KCl salt. All coatings were highly protective in all environments in the absence of KCl due to formation of corresponding protective scales of alumina or chromia on the coating surface. When KCl was introduced, chromia-forming coatings degraded through a two-stage mechanism; 1) formation of K2CrO4 and Cl- followed by diffusion of Cl- through oxide grain boundaries, leading to formation of Cl2, metal chlorides as well as a nonprotective oxide, and 2) inward diffusion of the formed Cl2 through defects in the non-protective oxide, leading to metal chloride evaporation and breakaway oxidation. The corrosion behavior of the chromia-forming Ni21Cr coating was improved by addition of alloying elements such as Al and Mo. It was also shown that adding dispersed SiO2 further increased the corrosion resistance of the coatings. The oxide scale formed in the presence of SiO2 effectively suppressed Cl- ingress and lowered the corrosion rate, since the formed oxide was continuous, adherent andrich in Cr. The performance of the coatings in the complex Cl-containing environment was ranked as (from highest to lowest corrosion resistance); Ni21Cr9Mo-SiO2 > Ni21Cr7AlY > Ni5Al > Ni21Cr9Mo > Ni21Cr, confirming the enhanced corrosion protection of chromia-forming coatings in the presence of alloying elements and dispersed SiO2.

    Oxidation behaviour of HVAF-sprayed NiCr coating in moisture-laden environment2017In: Proceedings of the International Thermal Spray Conference & Exposition (ITSC 2017), New York: Curran Associates, Inc. , 2017, Vol. 2, p. 644-646Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Reducing CO2 emissions from power generation plants is intimately related to enhancing their thermal efficiency, which can be achieved by increasing the temperature/pressure of steam. However, any increase in steam temperature is inevitably accompanied by accelerated oxidation of boiler components. The use of renewable fuels such as biomass increases the problem by introducing a number of corrosive compounds into the boiler environment, resulting in more rapid degradation of components. Although thermal sprayed coatings are techno-commercially attractive solutions for augmenting the durability of degradation-prone boiler components and are already used, further improvements in their performance are continuously sought. High-velocity air fuel (HVAF) coatings are promising in this context. In the present work, isothermal oxidation behavior of a candidate HVAF-sprayed Ni21Cr was studied in N2 + 5% O2 + 20% H2O at 600°C for 168h. The oxide scale growth mechanisms were studied by BIB/SEM/EDX to evaluate the effectiveness of the coatings. It was found that the water vapor effect is insignificant due to the Cr reservoir in the Ni21Cr coating, which yielded enhanced oxidation protection by forming nano-scale Cr2O3

    Effect of water vapor on the oxidation behavior of HVAF-sprayed NiCr and NiCrAlY coatings2018In: Materials and corrosion - Werkstoffe und Korrosion, ISSN 0947-5117, E-ISSN 1521-4176, Vol. 69, no 10, p. 1431-1440Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Isothermal oxidation behavior of NiCr and NiCrAlY coatings deposited onto low alloy 16Mo3 steel by high-velocity air fuel (HVAF) process was investigated in 5% O-2+20% H2O+N-2 at 600 degrees C for 168h. Whereas NiCrAlY showed lower mass gain compared to NiCr, both coatings succeeded in maintaining the integrity with the substrate during the exposure without any breakaway oxidation. A thin Cr-rich oxide scale (Cr2O3) formed on NiCr, and a thin mixed oxide scale (Al2O3 with NiCr2O4) formed on NiCrAlY significantly increasing the oxidation protection in the presence of water vapor.

    Oxidation Behavior of HVAF-Sprayed NiCoCrAlY Coating in H2–H2O Environment2016In: Oxidation of Metals, ISSN 0030-770X, E-ISSN 1573-4889, Vol. 86, no 3-4, p. 299-314Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Isothermal oxidation behavior of an HVAF-sprayed NiCoCrAlY coating on AISI 304L was studied in an Ar–10 %H2–20 %H2O environment at 600 °C. Techniques such as BIB/SEM, EDS, and XRD were used to comprehensively characterize the coating and the coating/substrate interface to investigate the oxidation mechanisms. Results were also compared with those obtained from an uncoated AISI 304L substrate. The alumina-forming NiCoCrAlY coating was found to exhibit superior oxidation behavior due to the formation of a slow-growing and protective Al2O3 scale, while the chromia-forming bare 304L substrate lost its protective capability due to the formation of a duplex [Fe3O4 on (Fe,Cr)3O4 spinel oxide] corrosion product layer.

    Isothermal Oxidation Behavior of EBM-Additive Manufactured Alloy 7182018In: Proceedings of the 9th International Symposium on Superalloy 718 & Derivatives: Energy, Aerospace, and Industrial Applications / [ed] Ott, E., Liu, X., Andersson, J., Bi, Z., Bockenstedt, K., Dempster, I., Groh, J., Heck, K., Jablonski, P., Kaplan, M., Nagahama, D. and Sudbrack, C., Springer, 2018, p. 219-240Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Oxidation of Alloy 718 manufactured by electron beam melting (EBM) process has been undertaken in ambient air at 650, 700, and 800 °C for up to 168 h. At 800 °C, a continuous external chromia oxide enriched in (Cr, Ti, Mn, Ni) and an internal oxide that was branched structure of alumina formed, whereas at 650 and 700 °C, a continuous, thin and protective chromia layer was detected. The oxidation kinetics of the exposed EBM Alloy 718 followed the parabolic rate law with an effective activation energy of ~248 ± 22 kJ/mol in good agreement with values in the literature for conventionally processed chromia-forming Ni-based superalloys. The oxide scale formed on the surface perpendicular to the build direction was slightly thicker, and more adherent compared to the scale formed on the surface along the build direction, attributed to the varied grain texture in the two directions of the EBM-manufactured specimens. The increased oxygen diffusion and high Cr depletion found on the surface along the build direction were attributed to the fine grains and formation of vacancies/voids along this grain orientation.

    Electrochemical Behavior of Bilayer Thermal-Spray Coatings in Low-Temperature Corrosion Protection2017In: Coatings, ISSN 2079-6412, Vol. 7, no 10, p. 1-13, article id 162Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Cr3C2-NiCr coatings are greatly used to protect critical components in corrosive environments and to extend their lifetime and/or improve functional performance. However, the pores formed during spraying restrict the coating’s applicability area for many corrosion protection applications. To overcome this technical challenge, bilayer coatings have been developed, in which an additional layer (the so-called intermediate layer) is deposited on the substrate before spraying the Cr3C2-NiCr coating (the so-called top layer). The corrosion behavior of the bilayer coating depends on the composition and microstructure of each layer. In the present work, different single-layer coatings (i.e., Cr3C2-NiCr, Fe- and Ni-based coatings) were initially sprayed by a high-velocity air fuel (HVAF) process. Microstructure analysis, as well as electrochemical tests, for example, open-circuit potential (OCP) and polarization tests, were performed. The potential difference (Delta E) had a great influence on galvanic corrosion between the top and intermediate layers, and thus, the coatings were ranked based on the OCP values (from high to low) as follows: NiCoCrAlY > NiCr > Cr3C2-NiCr > NiAl > Fe-based coatings (alloyed with Cr) > pure Ni. The Ni-based coatings were chosen to be further used as intermediate layers with the Cr3C2-NiCr top layer due to their capabilities to show high OCP. The corrosion resistance (R-p) of the bilayer coatings was ranked (from high to low) as follows: NiCoCrAlY/Cr3C2-NiCr > NiCr/Cr3C2-NiCr > NiAl/Cr3C2-NiCr > Ni/Cr3C2-NiCr. It was shown that splat boundaries and interconnected pores are detrimental for corrosion resistance, however, a sufficient reservoir of protective scale-forming elements (such as Cr or/and Al) in the intermediate layer can significantly improve the corrosion resistance.

    Isothermal oxidation of HVAF-sprayed Ni-based chromia, alumina and mixed-oxide scale forming coatings in ambient air2017In: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 316, p. 10-21Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The power generation industry has been progressively shifting towards higher operating steam temperatures and pressures to increase efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. However, higher operating temperatures lead to more aggressive oxidation of the boiler components. A promising route to improve the durability of degradation-prone components is through deployment of high-performance coatings. In the present work, four Ni-based coatings - Ni21Cr, Ni5Al, Ni21Cr9Mo, and Ni21Cr7Al1Y - thermally sprayed by the high-velocity air fuel (HVAF) technique on boiler steel (16Mo3) substrates were investigated. The isothermal oxidation behavior of the coatings was studied in ambient air environment at 600 °C for different time intervals i.e. 1, 5, 10, 24, 48, 96, and 168 h. The oxidation behavior of the as-sprayed and polished coatings was compared. The protective α-Al2O3 was not detected on the exposed alumina-forming NiAl coating. On the other hand, Cr2O3 along with a small amount of NiO were the main oxidation products on the surface of the NiCr and NiCrMo coatings, and were found to be relatively less protective. The mixed-oxide scale forming NiCrAlY coatings showed the best oxidation resistance due to the formation of a thin and slow-growing Al2O3 scale along with Ni(Al,Cr)2O4 and Cr2O3. The polished coatings were found to significantly reduce the oxidation rate in each case as the protective scale-forming elements were more uniformly supplied to the surface oxide scale by removing the surface asperities. © 2017 Elsevier B.V.

    Effect of SiO2 Dispersion on Chlorine-Induced High-Temperature Corrosion of High-Velocity Air-Fuel Sprayed NiCrMo Coating2018In: Corrosion, ISSN 0010-9312, E-ISSN 1938-159X, Vol. 74, no 9, p. 984-1000Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    NiCrMo coatings with and without dispersed SiO2 were deposited using high-velocity air-fuel technique. Thermogravimetric experiments were conducted in 5% O-2 + 500 vppm HCl + N-2 with and without a KCl deposit at 600 degrees C for up to 168 h. The SiO2-containing coating showed lower weight change as a result of formation of a protective and adherent Cr-rich oxide scale. SiO2 decelerated short-circuit diffusion of Cr3+ through scale's defects, e.g., vacancies, and promoted the selective oxidation of Cr to form the protective Cr-rich oxide scale. Furthermore, the presence of SiO2 led to less subsurface depletion of Cr in the coating, and accordingly less corrosion of the substrate. The formed corrosion product on the SiO2-free coating was highly porous, non-adherent, and thick.

    Isothermal oxidation behavior of HVAF-sprayed Ni and NiCr coatings in H2-H2O environment2017In: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 317, p. 17-25Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The formation of a protective chromia scale on stainless steels is known to be suppressed by the presence of water vapor in reducing conditions. Thermal spray coatings present a promising approach to improve the durability of steels by transferring the first line of oxidation attack from the bulk steel to the coating. In the present work, isothermal oxidation behavior of Ni and NiCr coatings deposited by High-Velocity Air Fuel (HVAF) process on 304L stainless steel was investigated at 600 degrees C for 168 h. Ar-10%H-2-20%H2O was selected as the oxidation environment to study the oxidation behavior of the coatings in a low pO(2) environment containing H2 and H2O. BIB/ SEM, EDS, and XRD techniques were used to characterize the as-sprayed coatings and to investigate the oxidation mechanisms in the coated samples. Results showed that both Ni and NiCr coatings imparted oxidation protection to the 304L substrate. The chromia-forming 304L steel presented a duplex but non-protective oxide scale comprising of an outer Fe3O4 layer on an inner (Fe, Cr)(3)O-4-spinel oxide. In contrast, the NiCr coating presented superior oxidation behavior due to the formation of a continuous, thin, and slow-growing Cr2O3 scale. The Ni coating, too, protected the substrate owing to limited nucleation and growth of the deleterious NiO scale in the low-oxygen -activity environment. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Microstructural characteristics and corrosion behavior of HVAF- and HVOF-sprayed Fe-based coatings2017In: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 318, p. 365-373Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fe-based coatings have been shown to be viable alternatives to the more expensive and less environmentally friendly Co- and Ni-based coatings. In the present work, the microstructural characteristics and corrosion behavior of Fe-based coatings deposited by high-velocity air fuel (HVAF) and high-velocity oxy fuel (HVOF) processes were comparatively investigated. Different sets of powder composition and particle size were used to decrease the porosity and increase the corrosion resistance of the coatings. The corrosion behavior of the coatings was studied using electrochemical techniques, including open-circuit potential (OCP) and polarization tests in 3.5 wt% NaCl at 25 °C. Techniques such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS), and X-ray diffractometry (XRD) were used to characterize the as-sprayed and corroded coatings. The results revealed that the HVAF coatings had lower porosity and oxide content than the HVOF coatings. The polarization tests confirmed that the HVAF coatings sprayed with finer particle size (− 36 + 20 μm) have higher polarization resistance (Rp) than the coatings produced by powders (− 53 + 20 μm). Based on SEM analysis, it was observed that corrosion initiated and grew through the surface defects of the coating and propagated through inter-lamellar boundaries.

    A Comparative Study of Corrosion Resistance for HVAF-Sprayed Fe- and Co-Based Coatings2016In: Coatings, ISSN 2079-6412, Vol. 6, no 2, p. 1-15Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    There is an increasing demand to replace Co-based coatings with cheap and environmentally friendly Fe-based coatings in corrosive environments. The main objective of this work was to evaluate whether Fe-based coatings could present a better corrosion performance than Co-based coatings. Therefore, two types of Fe-based and one type of Co-based coatings with chemical compositions (in wt %) of Fe-28Cr-16Ni-1.85C (FeNiCrC), Fe-17Cr-12Ni (FeNiCr), andCo-28Cr-1C (CoCrC) were produced by High Velocity Air Fuel (HVAF) spraying. The corrosion behavior of the coatings was studied comparatively by electrochemical tests in 3.5 wt % NaCl solutionat 25 C. The polarization test results showed that the FeCrNiC coating protected the underlying substrate better than the CoCrC coating, while the FeCrNi coating failed to hinder the penetration of corrosive ions. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) measurements revealed that thesolution penetrated into the coating through defects, however the corrosion process slowed down due to clogging of the interconnected defects by corrosion products. Increasing the in-flight average particle temperature from 1400 C to 1500 C led to a denser coating with fewer defects which seemed to improve the corrosion resistance of the FeCrNiC coating. The high-alloyed Fe-based coatings had the best corrosion protection performance and can thus be recommended as a potential alternative toCo-based coatings.

    A comparative study on Ni-based coatings prepared by HVAF, HVOF, and APS methods for corrosion protection applications2016In: Journal of thermal spray technology (Print), ISSN 1059-9630, E-ISSN 1544-1016, Vol. 25, no 8, p. 1604-1616Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Selection of the thermal spray process is the most important step towards a proper coating solution for a given application as important coating characteristics such as adhesion, and microstructure, etc. are highly dependent on it. In the present work, a process-microstructure-properties-performance correlation study was performed in order to figure out the main characteristics and corrosion performance of the coatings produced by different thermal spray techniques such as high-velocity airfuel (HVAF), high-velocity oxy fuel (HVOF), and atmospheric plasma spraying (APS). Previously optimized HVOF and APS process parameters were used to deposit Ni, NiCr, and NiAl coatings and compare with HVAF-sprayed coatings with randomly selected process parameters. As the HVAF process presented the best coating characteristics and corrosion behavior, various process parameters,e.g., feed rate and stand off distance (SoD) were investigated to systematically optimize the HVAF coatings in terms of high density and corrosion properties. The coatings with lower porosity and better corrosion behavior were obtained at an average SoD of 300 mm for the Ni and NiAl coatings and a SoDof 250 mm for the NiCr coating. Increasing the feed rate to 150 g/min in the Ni and NiAl coatings decreased the coating pores and accordingly increased the Rp.

    Duplex thermal spray coatings: a critical approach to extend the service-life of metallic components2016Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Corrosion is a common problem for many metallic components used today in a wide range of industries. Thermal spraying is a promising approach to properly protect the metallic structure from the deleterious effects of the environment that surrounds it. In this study, three types of coating systems (A: single layer of Cr3C2-NiCr, B: Ni/Cr3C2-NiCr and C: NiCr/Cr3C2-NiCr) were deposited using HVAF process. Electrochemical tests were employed to investigate the corrosion susceptibility of the above systems. OCP, polarization and EIS tests were performed in 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution at 25°C. Results showed that bi-layer coatings exhibited a better corrosion resistance than the single-layer coating. While coating system A demonstrated some signs of pitting due to the penetration of tiny chloride ions through the defects of the coating, which eventually led to the destruction of the substrate close to the interface, coating systems B and C showed much better anti-corrosion behavior. Moreover, the results confirmed that gradual changes of the composition from the top coating to substrate reduced the possibility of galvanic corrosion. SEM, EDAX, and XRD were used to characterize the corrosion products along the surface and the cross-section of specimens.

    HVAF thermal spray Fe-based coating: An environmentally acceptable alternative to cobalt-based coating2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fe-based coatings were widely used in the corrosive environment of various indus-tries. It was replacing expensive cobalt-based alloys, which face a ban in the future due to serious health and environmental risks. The aim of the present work was to compare low temperature corrosion behavior of some Fe- and Co-based coatings produced by High-Velocity Air Fuel (HVAF) thermal spraying. Polarization and elec-trochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) tests were carried out in 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution at 25°C. The microstructures were analyzed using optical microscopy (OM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to characterize the morphologies of both Fe- and Co-based coatings and analyze the exposed products along the surface and cross-section of specimens. The results revealed that the high-chromium Fe-based coating protected the underlying substrate better than Co-based coating.

    Microstructural and electrochemical characterization of Ni-based bi-layer coatings produced by the HVAF process2016In: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 304, p. 606-619Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Bi-layer coating systems comprising a Cr3C2-NiCr coating with different underlying coatings of Ni, NiCr, NiCoCrAlY, and CoNiCrAlY were deposited on 304L stainless steel substrates using the high-velocity air fuel (HVAF) process. The corrosion behavior of the coating systems was studied using electrochemical and immersion tests in 3.5 wt% NaCl at 25 °C. The higher open-circuit potential (OCP) value of the NiCoCrAlY coating (− 120 mV/SCE) compared to the value of the Cr3C2-NiCr coating (− 230 mV/SCE) revealed that the underlying NiCoCrAlY coating was sacrificially protected by Cr3C2-NiCr coating. The polarization resistance (Rp) of the bi-layer coatings with the different underlying coatings of Ni, NiCr, NiCoCrAlY and CoNiCrAlY was approximately 77, 189, 487, and 74 kΩ·cm2 respectively, while the value was 101 kΩ·cm2 for the single-layer Cr3C2-NiCr coating and 30 kΩ·cm2 for the 304L substrate, which confirmed a higher corrosion protection of the NiCoCrAlY coating. The electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) results showed that the corrosion resistance of the 304L substrate was significantly improved by adding an intermediate layer of NiCoCrAlY to the Cr3C2-NiCr coating. Results of the immersion tests confirmed that the underlying coatings in the different bi-layer coating systems acted as protective barriers. Moreover, the NiCoCrAlY coating showed the best corrosion protection among the investigated underlying coatings.

    Microstructure effect of intermediate coat layer on corrosion behavior of HVAF-sprayed bi-layer coatings2017In: Journal of thermal spray technology (Print), ISSN 1059-9630, E-ISSN 1544-1016, Vol. 26, no 1-2, p. 243-253Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The inherent pores and carbides of Cr3C2-NiCr coatings significantly reduce the corrosion resistance, the former by providing preferential paths for ion diffusion and the latter by forming cathodic sites in galvanic couples (between NiCr and Cr3C2). Adding a dense intermediate layer (intermediate coat layer) between the Cr3C2-NiCr coating (top coat) and substrate increases the corrosion protection of the coating if the layer acts as cathode in connection to the top coat. In the present work, NiCr, NiAl, and NiCoCrAlY layers were deposited by high-velocity air fuel(HVAF) process as intermediate coat layers for the Cr3C2-NiCr top coat. Effects of coating microstructure on corrosion behavior of single- and bi-layer coatings were studied by open circuitpotential (OCP) and polarization tests in 3.5 wt% NaCl at room temperature. A zero resistanceammeter (ZRA) technique was used to study the galvanic corrosion of the coupledtop and intermediate coat layers. Methods such as SEM and XRD were employed to characterize the as-sprayed and corroded coatings and investigate the corrosion mechanisms.The results showed that the NiCoCrAlY coating not only presented a more positive corrosion potential (Ecorr) than the Cr3C2-NiCr coating, but also provided a better passive layer than the single-phase NiCr and NiAl coatings.

    Corrosion performance of bi-layer Ni/Cr2C3–NiCr HVAF thermal spray coating2016In: Applied Surface Science, ISSN 0169-4332, E-ISSN 1873-5584, Vol. 369, p. 470-481Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The corrosion behavior of three HVAF thermal spray coating systems (A: single-layer Ni, B: single-layer Cr2C3–NiCr coatings, and C: bi-layer Ni/Cr2C3–NiCr coating) was comparatively studied using immersion,salt spray, and electrochemical tests. Polarization and EIS results showed that the corrosion behavior of Cr2C3–NiCr coatings in 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution was significantly improved by adding the intermediate layer of Ni. It was illustrated that the polarization resistance of the bi-layer Ni/Cr2C3–NiCr and singlelayerCr2C3–NiCr coatings were around 194 and 38 k cm2, respectively. Microstructure analysis revealed that the bond coating successfully prevented the corrosion propagation toward the coating.

    Corrosion behavior of high-chromium Fe-based coatings produced by HVAF thermal spraying technique2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fe-based coatings with different Cr content were prepared by high-velocity air fuel (HVAF) spraying on the surface of both carbon steel and stainless steel 304L. The corrosion behavior of the coatings were evaluated using polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) techniques in 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution. Microstructure of the coatings were evaluated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), optical microscopy (OM), scanning election microscopy (SEM), and Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) before and after corrosion testing. The experimental results indicated that Cr strongly increased the corrosion resistance of the coating. Furthermore, having an elemental composition closer to that of the substrate, the coatings showed lower susceptibility to galvanic corrosion, accordingly lower corrosion rate.

    Influence of KCl and HCl on high temperature corrosion of HVAF-sprayed NiCrAlY and NiCrMo coatings2018In: Materials & design, ISSN 0264-1275, E-ISSN 1873-4197, Vol. 148, p. 17-29Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The oxidation performance of NiCrAlY and NiCrMo coatings thermally sprayed by high velocity air-fuel (HVAF) technique has been investigated in a chloridizing-oxidizing environment, with and without a KCl deposit, at 600 °C for up to 168 h. Both coatings protected the substrate in the absence of KCl due to formation of a dense Cr-rich oxide scale. In the presence of KCl, Cl−/Cl2 diffused through a non-protective and porous NiCr2O4 scale formed on NiCrAlY, leading to formation of volatile CrCl3. On the other hand, Mo in NiCrMo stimulated the formation of a more protective Cr-rich oxide scale which increased the corrosion resistance by reducing Cl−/Cl2 diffusion.

    Chlorine-induced high temperature corrosion of HVAF-sprayed Ni-based alumina and chromia forming coatings2018In: Corrosion Science, ISSN 0010-938X, E-ISSN 1879-0496, Vol. 132, no March, p. 170-184Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chlorine-induced corrosion of HVAF-sprayed Ni21Cr and Ni5Al coatings was investigated in 5 vol.% O2 + 500vppm HCl + N2 with and without KCl at 600 °C up to 168 h. Both coatings were protective in the absence of KCl. With KCl, Ni21Cr degraded through a two-stage mechanism: 1) formation of K2CrO4 followed by diffusion of Cl− through the oxide grain boundaries to yield chlorine and a non-protective oxide, and 2) inward diffusion of chlorine though defects in the non-protective oxide, leading to breakaway oxidation. Cl−/Cl2 could not diffuse through the protective alumina scale formed on Ni5Al, hence the corrosion resistance increased.

    Effects of surface finish on the initial oxidation of HVAF-sprayed NiCoCrAlY coatings2019In: Surface & Coatings Technology, ISSN 0257-8972, E-ISSN 1879-3347, Vol. 364, p. 43-56Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Oxide scale formed on HVAF-sprayed NiCoCrAlY coatings and the effect of surface treatment were investigated by a multi-approach study combining photo-stimulated luminescence, microstructural observation and mass gain. The initial oxidationbehaviour of as-sprayed, polished and shot-peened coatings at 1000 °C is studied. Both polished and shot-peened coatings exhibited superior performance due to rapid formation of α-Al2O3 fully covering the coating and suppressing the growth of transient alumina, assisted by a high density of α-Al2O3 nuclei on surface treatment induced defects. Moreover, the fast development of a two-layer alumina scale consisting of an inward-grown inner α-Al2O3 layer and an outer layer transformed from outward-grown transient alumina resulted in a higher oxide growth rate of the as-sprayed coating.

    Isothermal oxidation behavior of HVAF-sprayed NiCoCrAlY coatings: Effect of surface treatment2017In: Proceedings of the International Thermal Spray Conference & Exposition (ITSC 2017), New York: Curran Associates, Inc , 2017, Vol. 1, p. 456-461Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    NiCoCrAlY coatings are widely used as bond coats for ceramic thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) andoxidation and corrosion protective overlay coatings in industrial gas turbines. High temperature oxidation behaviour of NiCoCrAlYs has a great influence on the coating performance and lifetime of TBCs. A promising route to decrease the oxidation rate of such coatings is post-coating surface modification which can facilitate formation of a uniform alumina scale with a considerably slower growth rate compared to the as-sprayed coatings. In this work, the effect of surface treatment by means of shot peening and laser surface melting (LSM) on the oxidation resistance of high velocity air-fuel (HVAF) sprayed NiCoCrAlY coatings was studied. Isothermal oxidation was carried out at 1000⁰C for 1000h. Results showed that the rough surface of as-sprayed HVAF sprayed coatings was significantly changed after shot peening and LSM treatment, with a compact and smooth appearance. After the exposure, the oxide scales formed on surface-treated NiCoCrAlY coatings showed different morphology and growth rate compared to those formed on as-sprayed coating surface. The oxidation behaviour of surface treated HVAF-sprayed NiCoCrAlY coatings were revealed and discussed.
